Why Startup Onramp?
It's easy to come up with startup ideas, but much harder to actually quit your day job and start a company. Those that do start often make predictable mistakes that lead to failure. We created the Startup Onramp program to give new and aspiring startup founders the knowledge and skills they need to successfully navigate the pitfalls of getting their startup through its first year.
If you are considering launching a startup, or have recently launched and are struggling to know what to do next, the Startup Onramp program is for you. For teams considering applying to a startup accelerator in Australia or overseas, Startup Onramp is a valuable "pre-accelerator" program to greatly improve your chances of being accepted into any startup accelerator.
