RMIT Activator FounderHUB is a three week program structured in 7 sessions, combining instructor-led and self-paced training. The program integrates design thinking methodologies, workshops and group coaching to provide aspiring and emerging founders with the entrepreneurial toolkit and nurture the founder mindset to kick-start their start-up journey.
The program is designed to precede the 12-week pre-accelerator program, LaunchHUB. FounderHUB participants with an existing startup idea or problem they are passionate about solving will be taken through a learning experience to ideate and generate a sound solution. Successful participants will be able to shape and progress innovative ideas into tested prototypes.
FounderHUB is here to help your idea flourish, which is why we offer the Seedling Fund to eligible founders.
The Seedling Fund is a $500 boost, given on behalf of the Activator Capital Fund to FounderHUB participants who attend all sessions and complete the online learning portion of the program.
