LV | GRANTS | Migrant & Refugee Startups | CLOSE Wednesday 5 July 2017

[Edited extract from public address]

LaunchVic's new grants round aims to support diversity and inclusion by making grants available to organisations who can assist first generation migrants and refugees to develop startup businesses.

Grants of $50,000 - $500,000 are available to supportive organisations who 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.
