what is a fastrack event

What is a FastTrack event?

FastTracks are our way of meeting the best startups and giving back to the startup community.

From January to March, we're visiting over 20 cities around the world to meet the best startups through our FastTrack events. These are free informal half day events where we meet the most innovative companies making an impact in the Sports & Events sectors. At the event you will receive feedback from industry experts, mentors, investors, and startup veterans. We'll also expand your local and global network with people who can help accelerate your business.

FastTrack events are also an opportunity for Startupbootcamp to learn more about your company and for you to learn more about Startupbootcamp and the accelerator program.

The FastTracks are free to attend but spaces are limited. Startupbootcamp receives dozens of applications for each FastTrack event and we can only invite 10 startups. We recommend applying early for the best chance of scoring an invitation.

We can't wait to say 'G'day!'

During our intense 3-month accelerator program, selected startups receive hands-on mentorship from over 100 industry experts, free office space in the heart of Melbourne, seed funding and access to a global network of investors with the ultimate goal of scaling their businesses and becoming industry-leading companies.

The program is structured around three pillars of growth: SHAPE, BUILD, & SELL. There is a high focus on business development and proof of value (POV) or proof of concept (POC) projects in the Australian market.

Each month we put emphasis on identifying the needs of each startup and providing tailored support. By the end of the program, we want your startup to be in a position to scale globally.
