About LaunchVic

Our Mission

To lead the development of a globally-connected startup ecosystem by supporting startups and investors to sustainably grow and deliver economic and cultural benefits for both Victoria and Australia.

Who we are

LaunchVic is Victoria's startup agency.

We were established by the Victorian Government in March 2016 as an independent agency responsible for developing Victoria's startup ecosystem. 

What we do

LaunchVic is leading the development of a globally-connected startup ecosystem. 

With the help of startup founders, entrepreneurs and investors, corporates and universities, we aim to build a startup ecosystem that can strengthen the economy, encourage more people to work with and for startups, and represent all Victorians.

Our focus lies in the areas of funding, community building and global recognition for the Victorian startup ecosystem.
