Do you know the difference between a startup and a scale up? Kate Cornick, who heads up LaunchVic, the state’s dedicated startup agency supporting entrepreneurs involved in everything from medtech to fintech to artificial intelligence, can fill you in.

It’s never been a better time to be an entrepreneur. Victoria’s startup community is maturing, building on the state’s reputation as Australia’s tech hub, and establishing a foundation for the state’s future growth. And LaunchVic, established in 2016, continues to be a driving force behind its success.

That success includes developing partnerships globally, and attracting international talent and organisations to Melbourne.

And we’re doing just that, with major US tech companies like Zendesk, Slack, Square, Hired, and Stripe choosing Melbourne to establish their Asia Pacific headquarters.  

It’s an exciting time for Victoria’s startup ecosystem, which is valued at $3.4 billion and growing rapidly year on year.
