Fresh off launching a new mentorship program for female founders, Startup Victoria is set to open Office Hours. Similar to a lecturer’s office hours at university, Startup Victoria is allowing members to book some one on one time with a number of founders, investors, and industry experts.
Startup Victoria has launched Ignite, a six month mentorship program for female founders. Looking to fill the gaps facing entrepreneurs who are not quite yet ready for or have completed an incubator or accelerator program, the program will have mentors and mentees focus on hitting two of six core milestones the organisation believes are key to success.
