Thank you for being a part of our community in 2019!
It's been a huge year for Victoria's startup ecosystem with Startup Genome declaring Victoria a 'Challenger' ecosystem - predicting it will become one of the top ecosystems globally in the next few years, and the annual Innovative Cities Index announcing Melbourne as Australia's most innovative city.
We look forward to an even bigger 2020 and wish you wonderful holidays and a safe and happy new year. 

The LaunchVic office will be closed from the 25 December - 2 January.

In the past year, LaunchVic has supported 144 startups through accelerator programs, in addition to 3,389 entrepreneurs through programs such as hackathons, workshops, masterclasses and short courses and mentoring. New investor education programs to build investor’s capability and excellence also commenced during the year and to date have supported 45 investors.
LaunchVic collected data for the 2019 Victorian Startup Ecosystem Mapping Report. The Victorian startup sector is growing at 23% per annum. One in five startups are focused on health and wellbeing which continues to be a core strength of the ecosystem. Diversity within the ecosystem is improving, with one in three founders identifying as female – a 3% improvement from 2017.
Vibrant startup ecosystems rely on the connectivity of key players to survive and grow. Events are a useful tool to promote the ecosystem and facilitate networking between important stakeholders. Over the year, LaunchVic hosted in excess of 150 events attended by over 4,000 people, and sponsored a further 30 events at the Victorian Innovation Hub.
