We’ll be back in 2019 with a bunch of awesome workshops and events.
It was a blast at Demo Day celebrating our teams’ achievements. The energy in the room was electric. We had a marvelous time seeing more than 200 students, alumni, investors, mentors, and members of the start-up community coming together to celebrate.
It takes a generous community to foster strong startup growth. We're proud to be part of this thriving ecosystem in Melbourne.
SPARK Deakin hosted StartCon’s Pitch For $1M Regional Victorian Final, an all-day event that included a pitch competition, main-stage keynotes, masterclasses and a startup expo.
We brought together the key regional Victorian startups, founders, investors and community partners, for one epic day with innovation at the forefront.
“The StartCon Pitch For $1M Victorian Regional Finals event will allow entrepreneurs from across the region to tap into transformational knowledge, learning how to scale their startup and generate maximum revenue and profit, as well as form and nurture key relationships that will support future innovation throughout their startup journey.”
Prof. Svetha Venkatesh, Deakin Applied Artificial Intelligence Institute (A2I2)
