2015 PROGRAM

ACT Chief Minister Andrew Barr will launch the GRIFFIN Accelerator 2015 program on Friday 13th February 2015 at 9:00am.

GRIFFIN accelerator is a 3 month intensive program run by a group of seasoned Canberra entrepreneurs who invest in, host, teach and mentor selected start-ups to create successful innovative businesses.

The incubator is seeking up to ten teams of passionate entrepreneurs who want their innovation to have a big impact which doubles the 2014 intake of start-ups.

GRIFFIN Accelerator mentors are some of Canberra’s most successful entrepreneurs with a successful track record of creating successful start-ups. In addition to contributing their time and skills, they will also invest around $300,000 across the selected teams.

GRIFFIN Accelerator’s vision is to change the world by making Australian innovations successful and to make Canberra the innovation capital.

Entrepreneurs and mentors with disruptive innovation and social change stories will be available for interview.

Launch:                               9:00 am, Friday 13th February 2015
