We build the capability and confidence of Victorians to create, scale and invest in startups
Victoria is emerging as a global challenger in the ecosystem rankings, leapfrogging the likes of Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and New Zealand to a $23.6 billion early-stage ecosystem valuation in 2022.
Despite the challenges of the past few years, our early-stage ecosystem valuation has doubled since 2021 and increased more than 10 times from 2016.
Named after the founder of Australia’s first all-woman motor garage in the 1920s, the Alice Anderson Fund is a $10 million angel sidecar fund supporting women-led startups.
Our fund co-invests between $50,000 and $300,000 in early-stage deals put forward by investors to increase the funding pool available to Victorian women.
