SBE Australia's Licensed Accelerator

SBE Australia accelerates women-led businesses. Since 2012, SBE Australia has been providing women with access to tools, networks and knowledge. 

Funded through LaunchVic's fourth round of funding, SBE Australia's Licensed Life Sciences accelerator program is for women-led healthcare and life science companies seeking seed and growth funding and expert connections to develop solutions in pharma, including new drugs, diagnostics, pharma technologies, and drug-delivery devices and more.

The Life Sciences Program serves as the on-ramp into the Springboard Alumnae Network: a global community of world-class entrepreneurs, investors and business development professionals committed to supporting entrepreneurial businesses and the women who lead them.

Participating companies are provided with a series of opportunities to work with relevant experts through in-person and virtual engagements that aim to support them in addressing gaps in their business case and investor pitch. 

SBE Australia's Life Sciences accelerator program will benefit at least 20 startups over three years.
