Plus Eight’s mission is to empower Australian founders and business leaders to deliver on ground-breaking ideas.

Overview

By combining structured programs with world-class mentoring, growth networks and seed funding, Plus Eight provides the perfect home for both first-time entrepreneurs and seasoned executives looking to grow. Launched in 2016 as a seed-funded accelerator program helping local startups go global, to date we have successfully delivered a wide range of programs from early-stage to large corporates support, across metro and regional areas of Australia.

We believe Western Australia has the right ingredients to be a world-leading innovation and startup centre. Below are the programs we currently deliver, including how you can get involved as a program participant, program partner or mentor.
