Melbourne Accelerator 2020 Velocity Showcase
You are invited to attend the MAP20 Velocity Showcase!
Join us on the 9th of December as we debut the next generation of innovative businesses poised to invigorate the Australian startup scene.
Velocity is MAP’s pre-accelerator program and tonight we celebrate the early stage founders from our 2020 program. This year was the first ever virtually delivered program and our founders demonstrated their incredible courage, resilience and commitment to plundering the depths of new quests despite the challenge of COVID19.
For the past 3 months, the MAP20 Velocity program has supported 26 founders who have taken part in an immersive series of workshops to help them take the next steps to realising their startup goals and tonight you will hear the fantastic pitches of 11 up and coming startup stars.
Velocity helps founders speed up their search for problem-solution fit and discovery of first customers. The program blends startup and impact methodologies to create traction for early stage startups. The experience comprises a structured workshop series that is augmented by hot-desking, mentoring, and tactical coaching from the MAP team, Entrepreneurs-in-Residence and network of MAP mentors.
