Startup Accelerator

PetriVentures Startup Accelerator is an 8-week program connecting early founders with top level CEOs, mentors and investors. Pitch us for $15,000 to $250,000.

What we do

Accelerating ambitious founders across Australia and New Zealand

Most accelerators aim to build large communities to attract uninterested suits to invest in your businesses. They don’t care for your success, you’re the 47 out of the 200 diversified start-up portfolios. We don’t think that way. We work with 10 start-up’s per year. Your business is your life and we treat it as such. Each of our CEO’s, mentors and investors each have a stake in PetriVenture investment fund so there is a vested interest to make sure you succeed.

Backed by top business mentors and CEOs

The start-up community doesn't take into account the human element of business. You're not a number, a 47. This is why we only invest in 10 businesses per year. We keep it tight and focus on each business.
