Our experts, your ideas; together at last.

Through funding, LaunchVic connects credible service-providers with startup founders and entrepreneurs who are building ambitious and exciting businesses in our state.  Rather than funding startups directly, our rounds target startup sector specialists who can deliver programs and support to Victorian startups in the form of education, incubators, accelerators, mentoring, professional development and other programs.

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


Round 9 'Expert-In-Residence'

Victorian coworking spaces are set to get a boost. New ‘Expert-In-Residence’ program will invest up to $25K per successful application to support the short-term appointment of experienced startup professionals for the benefit of coworking residents.

How does funding work?

LaunchVic funds activity that will: 

  • increase diversity and inclusion so that as many Victorians as possible can engage in startup activity 
  • enhance founder and investor capability and excellence 
  • leverages the State's key strengths, such as health and wellbeing, so that we can position the State as an internationally recognised startup ecosystem.
