Startup Onramp

Encouraging more people to become startup founders and to give them the knowledge, skills and connections they need to maximise their chances of success

Startup Onramp is a suite of structured training and mentoring programs to equip first-time founders with essential skills to launch and grow their startup. The programs are for startup founders who are at the beginning of their startup journey, including those who currently have a day job and want to make the transition from employee to startup founder.

The Startup Onramp Founders Course is a two-day intensive course on how to start a startup and maximise your chances of success. On completion of the course participants are able to sign up for optional ongoing mentoring to help them take their idea further. The Startup Onramp Pre-Accelerator is a 12-week part-time program that comprises a workshop each week plus weekly individual mentoring sessions, and culminates in a pitch night in which all participants pitch their startup and share their learnings with fellow entrepreneurs. Other programs provide startup founders with access to a global network of startup founders, mentors and investors.

The Startup Onramp Founders Course is currently running in Brisbane, and the Startup Onramp Pre-Accelerator is available at locations across regional Queensland.
