Headquartered in Geelong, Runway has entrepreneurial programs to assist people in developing and validating their business ideas – incubating and accelerating their startups, or scaling up their existing business.
Funded through LaunchVic's first funding round, Runway's accelerator program supported 24 startups. Founders and entrepreneurs gained access to a purpose-built co-working space in Geelong, mentors, partners and a range of substantially discounted professional services and products.
Runway received further funding under LaunchVic's Grants for Pre Accelerators to deliver their pre-accelerator program. The program provides early-stage startups with a launch-pad to take their idea, build a business model and build and validate their minimum viable product. Runway's pre-accelerator provides a community based, structured, collaborative and supportive environment.
