Event recap - ON Accelerate 7 Showcase

Meet Australia's latest cohort of deep tech startups

Earlier this year nine teams of venture builders from various Australian universities and research organisations spent three intense months developing their research-driven enterprises through ON Accelerate 7. In May 2023, these budding entrepreneurs from Monash University, The Australian National University, James Cook University, Telethon Kids Institute, WEHI (Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research) and CSIRO presented their innovations at our Showcase event, held at the Australian National Maritime Museum. If you missed the Showcase event and are keen to support Australia's latest deep tech startups, you can view their team pitches and connect with them on our website.

ON Prime 13 teams lifted off at Showcase

Congratulations to ON Prime 13 teams

In the latest round of ON Prime, 46 teams participated from across 21 universities and organisations. Showcase events were held across Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and online, where teams shared their ON Prime journey and took the next steps towards connecting with industry and creating impact. We were excited to deliver our first space-themed 🚀 cohort, which was conducted in partnership with the iLAuNCH Trailblazer, out of the University of Southern Queensland.
