Activator’s sixth LaunchHUB – meet the startups

Activator’s sixth LaunchHUB – meet the startups

Activator is thrilled to welcome nine new teams to our flagship LaunchHUB program.

25 November 2019



LaunchHUB is a unique accelerator program designed to support the launch of new enterprises through bespoke resources including coaching, founder education, wellbeing support, and capital.

We are privileged to work with startup coaches who are experienced founders themselves. Guiding the teams through this 12-week intensive are Jeanette Cheah (The Hacker Exchange), Darren Sutton (The Common Purpose Collective) and Luke McCarthy (Tickbox).

Our program also offers a premium co-working space in the CBD and the opportunity to apply for pre-seed funding of up to $25,000.

“I’m excited about the incredible diversity within our newest cohort,” said April Bjork, the Startups Program Coordinator at Activator.

“We’ve enhanced our program framework to make it more outcome-oriented, which will set our teams up for success in achieving milestones and funding.”

LaunchHUB has also introduced a new founder wellbeing coach – James Lolicato (Pride Cup Australia) – who will support our teams on the challenging and stressful journey of being a founder.

“There was an incredible and authentic vibe at our Induction Day," said Paz Pisarski, Community Coordinator at Activator.

"I can’t wait to see the nine amazing startups grow and connect with our supportive Activator startup community,”
