Creative3 Pitch winners given chance to join Virgin StartUps program
Australian startups are being given the chance to part-take in Virgin StartUps accelerator program if they win its creative-tech pitching competition.
QUT Creative Enterprise Australia (CEA) has announced that the opportunity to participate in Virgin StartUp’s mini-accelerator program has been added to the prize pool for the winner of its annual creative-tech pitching competition Creative3 Pitch.
CEA’s Creative3 Pitch is Australia’s only pitching competition approved to send an Australian startup to be part of the exclusive Virgin StartUp program. The successful startup will have their participation fees, flights and accommodation covered to work alongside Virgin StartUp’s mini-accelerator program StepUp.
As in previous years, the winner of Creative3 Pitch will also travel to Copenhagen to represent Australia as part of the global initiative for creative entrepreneurship and innovation, the Creative Business Cup.
“We continue to drive firsts for the Australian creative industries ecosystem, and we’re proud to promote the winner of Creative3 Pitch to work with Virgin StartUp in London and the Creative Business Cup in Copenhagen,” says CEA’s acting CEO, Mark Gusowski.
