Campaigns

Scaleup Your Career

Scaleups consulted as part of LaunchVic research found that 38% of scaleups identify finding Talent as a challenge to achieving higher growth. Scaleup Your Career Campaign is designed to help solve this problem by connecting suitably qualified change makers with scaleups. Over 12 weeks we'll be using outdoor and digital advertising to showcase how awesome it is to work at scaleup and provide tips for Change Makers on how to land a job.

Open Rounds

Open Round

Round X 'Supporting Further Growth'

LaunchVic’s tenth funding grant round focuses on capturing new ideas and initiatives to support the development of startup founders and entrepreneurs in the Victorian startup ecosystem. Unlike LaunchVic’s recent grant rounds, this round is ‘open’ meaning there is no specific focus. However we are requesting applications that align with our strategy.

ScaleUp: Redbubble

In this series; Redbubble was founded in Fitzroy, Victoria in 2006 when Peter, Martin and Paul sat around to talk about an idea. It's since become a global three-sided creative marketplace for artists to upload their work and it reproduced on-demand for customers. In 2018 Redbubble, still based in Melbourne, has been through it all; leadership changes, the Global Financial Crisis, a down-round, legal controversy, an Initial Public Offering and more.
