Pay it forward: Help us put Melbourne & Victoria on the startup map!

Paying it forward is a key strength of Victoria's fast-growing startup ecosystem.

LaunchVic is once again teaming up with Startup Genome for our bi-annual ecosystem survey.

Startup Genome’s Global Startup Ecosystem Report in 2020 valued the Victorian Startup Ecosystem at more than $10.5 billion. This report is the most read of its kind by investors, founders, government and policy makers around the world.

Since 2011, Startup Genome have been working with the world’s top startup ecosystems to identify gaps and growth opportunities for ecosystem leaders like yourself.

Contribute to the growth story

We are seeking founders from across Victoria to have their say in our next survey.


The insights gathered from the 2022 survey will help direct LaunchVic’s future focus and most importantly position the state of Victoria against premier startup ecosystems globally, helping us to attract more attention and support for the ecosystem as a whole.

The founder survey takes just 15 minutes to complete, is completely confidential, and all startup data is aggregated and anonymised.

The survey is geared toward technology startup founders of companies under 10 years old.
