Grants for migrant & refugee startups
LaunchVic's new grants round aims to support diversity and inclusion by making grants available to organistions who can assist first generation migrants and refugees to develop startup businesses.
The grants support organisations who can deliver quality programs in areas that help people to establish and manage startups, including education, acceleration, incubation and mentoring.
Migrants who were born overseas and refugees are identified as excellent contributors to the startup industry in having the kind of high risk appetite that is foundational for entrepeneurialism, which comes with starting life in a new country.
Grants of $50,000 - $500,000 are available and the round is open until Wednesday 5 July 2017.
To attend an information session in person in the Docklands on Wednesday 14 June from 10am - 11am, or online on Friday 23 June, email LaunchVic Grants Team on firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest.
