The enterprise value of Victoria’s entire startup ecosystem (including startups, scaleups and unicorns) is now $91 billion – Victoria’s startup ecosystem is now the same size as Tel Aviv in 2016.
Melbourne’s early-stage Ecosystem Value has increased by 56 per cent in the past year – up from $23.6 billion (AUD) to $36.9 billion (AUD).
Since 2016, LaunchVic has supported 1,150 budding entrepreneurs and startups through our funded pre-accelerator and accelerator programs and unlocked more than $500M of private sector capital for early-stage startups.
