ACCELERATE YOUR ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY STARTUP IN WESTERN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA’S FASTEST GROWING REGION

A good place
to build your startup.

Startup SydWest is a 12-month duration accelerator program supporting advanced technology start-ups working in high-growth industry sectors or using technologies where there is potential to drive international market opportunities, particularly within the Asia Pacific region. Delivered through Western Sydney University’s highly successful Launch Pad Technology Business Incubator, the accelerator provides a range of support activities designed to help start-ups establish quickly, hone the value proposition, rapidly develop technology, access markets and scale effectively. Startups are immersed in an expansive innovation network providing easy connections to mentors, potential customers and co-founders, investors, industry experts and collaborators for research and development. The extended period of 12 months for the accelerator program, as compared to normal 3 or 6 month programs, provides a much deeper experience, allowing adequate time for technical development and international market connectivity.
