Startupbootcamp Australia comes to Seoul to Scout for Korean Startups

About the Startupbootcamp program

Startupbootcamp is a world-leading accelerator that scouts innovative and top-tier startups that are looking to disrupt the current industry status quo with diverse solutions. During the intense 3-month accelerator program, the selected startups receive hands-on mentorship from over 100 industry experts.  In addition, startups get free office space, seed funding, and access to a global network of investors with the ultimate goal of scaling their businesses and becoming industry-leading companies. In the past two years, Startupbootcamp Australia has supported 21 startups from all over the world. 

How does Startupbootcamp help Startups?

Alumni from the last two programs have achieved massive success by leveraging the mentorship from the FastTracks and Programs. Some notable alumni mentions include the following:

  • FOHAT conducted a microgrid assessment at Queen Victoria Market in partnership with the City of Melbourne.
  • UCapture completed a batch installation of their browser extension with the Spotless corporation.
  • A pilot between RedGrid and Energy Australia focused on automated demand management. 

Another notable Startupbootcamp alumni from the first Energy Australia program is EnergyTech Ventures. The India-based startup has trailed its software across 11 million feet of commercial real estate in India, Australia, and UAE. EnergyTech Ventures finalized contracts worth US$500k ARR.  They were also featured on CNBC.  

These startups were able to capitalize on their relationships with Startupbootcamp’s corporate partners and mentors and accelerate their businesses profoundly in a short period of time. 

Bringing Korean Startups to the 2020 Energy Australia Program

As part of the SBC World Tour, Startupbootcamp Australia will be traveling to 27 cities to scout for the 2020 EnergyAustralia Program with their FastTrack events. FastTracks are essentially half-day events where startups share what they do.  In addition, they receive immediate feedback on some of their biggest challenges from experienced entrepreneurs, investors, and industry experts. 

CEO Trevor Townsend will be visiting Seoul on 6 September to meet 10 cutting edge startups that are disrupting the energy sector. Industry experts and Startupbootcamp mentors provide feedback and guidance at the event. FastTracks also give startups the opportunity to connect with people who can help accelerate their businesses.  This includes the VC fund that’s aligned with the accelerator program, Artesian Capital, and corporate partners including Energy Australia, Spotless and DiUS.
