The Precinct’s First Pre-Accelerator Program Revealed

Today marks the launch of StartClub_BNE, the first pre-accelerator program launched and led by The Precinct team. Located in the heart of Brisbane City, this six-week business initiative is tailored to support early-stage founders in developing, scaling, and nurturing their startup. 

 

StartClub_BNE is expected to attract entrepreneurs, researchers, and students with big ideas across South East Queensland. The Precinct Program Manager, Holly Hudson, said that she is excited to see a wide range of startups come through the program.

 

“I can’t wait to see the talent Brisbane’s going to bring to The Precinct! I’ve already had some fantastic conversations with those in the innovation community and I’m expecting a pool of applications to come from SportsTech, SaaS, Agtech, Fintech, and Edtech sectors. And since Start Club BNE is not limited by the industry type, I think it’s going to create a really interesting cohort that will foster innovative thinking and potential collaboration.” – Program Manager, Holly Hudson

 

With only ten spots available, this competitive, industry-agnostic program welcomes founders at all stages, from ideation to post-ideation. Successful applicants will engage in bi-weekly workshops covering essential topics such as Customer Discovery, MVP Launch, Marketing, Capital Raising, and Pitching.
