You’re invited to the ON Accelerate 7 Showcase on 18 May

Nine teams of venture builders from various Australian universities and research organisations have spent an intense three months developing their research-driven enterprises through ON Accelerate.

They’re gearing up to pitch their ventures to the Australian innovation ecosystem at the ON Accelerate 7 Showcase Day this month on 18 May and we’d love to see you in the crowd!

Join us in Sydney to celebrate their progress and hear how you can support Australia’s newest cohort of deep-tech companies.
