THE MAP STORY

Powered by Australia's leading university, the Melbourne Accelerator Program (MAP) was launched in 2012 as one of the first startup accelerators in Australia, and in 2016 was ranked the 8th best University-aligned accelerator in the world.

Every year we invest in 10 of Australia’s most outstanding startups, equipping them with $20,000 equity-free funding, inner-city office space and access to Australia’s best business minds to help them accelerate their growth.

MAP also offers a range of additional programs and events to the broader startup ecosystem, including the Velocity Program (a part-time program for early stage founders), the Franklins (a female-founders network), the Master Class series and a range of signature events including Australia's premier entrepreneurial event; the Melbourne Entrepreneurship Gala.
