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. We created the Startup Onramp program to give new and aspiring startup founders the knowledge, skills and connections they need to successfully get their startup through its first year.

So you have an idea for a startup. What now?!
A free panel event hosted by Startup Onramp at WeWork, 310 Edward Street Brisbane
Startup Onramp presents a fireside chat with three inspirational startup founders who have all taken startup ideas and turned them into rapidly growing online businesses.
In this panel discussion we will unpack the steps to validating a startup idea, building a minimum viable product, acquiring your first customers and raising money from investors. We'll also discuss the most common pitfalls that lead many startups to fail.
Our three amazing speakers are:
- Megan Avard, founder and CEO of SurePact
- Aaron Birkby, co-founder of Peak Persona
- Conor Hagan, co-founder of Explorate
The discussion will be moderated by Colin Kinner, founder of Startup Onramp and one of Australia's most experienced startup coaches.
Join us for this event if you are interested to know more about startups, if you have an idea for a startup but you're not sure what to do next, or if you're just curious about what it takes to throw in the 9 to 5 and become an entrepreneur.
