Victoria University has joined forces with Victorian start-up organisation Startup Victoria in a bid to stimulate the local tech ecosystem, launching a joint-partnership research project into the state’s founder community as well as a number of other initiatives.
What FOUND is
FOUND, a groundbreaking research partnership between Victoria University and Startup Victoria, will unearth a grassroots profile of the Victorian founder community on an annual basis.
Victoria’s startup ecosystem has evolved. And so has its founder community. The traditional technology-diven, male-led startup stereotype has been replaced by a diverse group of creative thinkers from all backgrounds, cultures and locations. And as the industry’s grown, so has their potential, and their vision.
For the first time ever, emerging founders from across the state will have a clear means by which to tell policy makers, educational institutions and service providers exactly what they need.
In this way, FOUND provides a direct mechanism for government and industry to discover how to best support the entire Victorian founder community, from policy, to education, to office space — and everything in between.
Together, they’ll determine the future context in which globally-focused, rapid-growth startups can thrive with Victoria as their base.
The image of the startup founder busily working away in obscurity is about to change.
For the first time, every single one of Victoria’s emerging founders now has a way to tell government, as well as the educational and support sectors, their own story.
FOUND is an annual research project from Victoria University and Startup Victoria. It’ll collate data from people as unique and visionary as you, all over the state, and present it to key players in the government, education, and private sectors.
We want to know who you are, and what you need to build a successful high-growth global business. Each year, selected founders will be profiled within the report, too. Given the eyes that’ll be on FOUND, that’s great exposure — especially for those who might not live near big-city pitch events or founder meetups.
FOUND is your chance to shift public and private sector thinking around what it means to found a globally-focused startup in Victoria. And it’s a chance to start a conversation about your business’s future, on your terms.
How to get involved
Founders are invited to fill in the pre-qualifying questionnaire at www.found-ed.com. From there, researchers from Victoria University will conduct one-on-one interviews with founder candidates.
