Founders Grow

UNSW Founders Grow

Looking to take your established startup business to the next level?


What is Founders Grow?

Founders Grow is a 10 week pre-accelerator program for teams looking to enter longer, more intensive accelerator programs or simply grow much fast than ever before.

Founders Grow teams will hear wide-ranging content on personal and organisational growth, business models, metrics that matter, sales and capital-raising. They will hear from investors and entrepreneurs with “been there-done that” experience and probably visit at least one fast-growing startup in Sydney.

To reward impressive progress and lay the foundations for further growth, Founders Grow offers each startup intensive support from subject-matter experts and entrepreneurs with been-there done-that experience. This program culminates in the final Demo Night, where chosen startups will pitch their businesses along with all of their latest progress.
