It is that time of the year again. We at Catalysr are looking for the most ambitious migrapreneurs in Australia who are interested in launching their own startup.

Our 2019 program is running from 19th July — 18th December.

Applications for our cohort 5 will close on Monday, 1st July — 5pm AEST, so get in early to avoid missing out.

You can apply here!

Who are we looking for?

You are a migrant or refugee entrepreneur in Australia a.k.a migrapreneur. You either have an early stage startup or an idea of a problem you’d like to solve using entrepreneurship.

You could be an international student who’s settling in Australia and looking for your big break, a migrant who’s frustrated because you can’t find professional work, or someone working at a corporate job and looking to venture out on your own.

This is the best platform for you to get started on your journey as a migrapreneur in Australia.

Why join?

Our alumni have told us there’s 3 key benefits they get out of the Catalysr pre-accelerator program.

  • You get to join a tribe of like-minded migrapreneurs, who are driven, hungry and resilient and will help you to build your self-confidence and your startup, and will be your family in Australia for life.
  • You will meet world-class advisors and mentors to learn about the skills and startup essentials needed to launch a startup in Australia.
  • You will join a ready-made network of leaders from startups, industry, academia corporate, Government and VC who are there to support you in validating your idea, pressure-testing your business, and building your startup.

Bonus: We are also very proud to announce that for the first time in Catalysr’s history, we will also be awarding $10k pre-seed funding for two top startups finishing the program.
