Griffin Accelerator program has revealed the five startups taking part in its three-month intensive program, with this year demonstrating a focus on women-led startups and businesses.
If there’s one thing politicians and the startup world agree on, it’s that the key to positioning Australia as a leader in technology in the future is to not only teach kids STEM skills, but to get them excited about the possibilities of technology. Canberra startup Hact is trying to do its part by running events to promote engagement with STEM and entrepreneurship among 10 to 17 year olds.
Canberra’s GRIFFIN Accelerator has announced the seven startups selected to take part in its 2015 program.
The teams that were accepted into the GRIFFIN accelerator presented to investors in Sydney’s ATP Innovations on Tuesday, as well as Canberra’s Capital Angels on Wednesday, and is said to have generated “substantial investor interest”. Across the two venues, teams received 46 expressions of interest, excluding the additional contacts made during post-pitch networking.
