I recently caught up with Karen Lawson, the CEO of Slingshot – an Australian accelerator program that connects large corporates with startups via tailored accelerator programmes.
Slingshot are running the recently announced LION Unleased 12 week accelerator, and are seeking applications from Australian and New Zealand tech startups and scale-ups. There’s up to $150,000 of funding up for grabs for each successful entrant, as well as the potential for additional investment from LION and the Slingshot Venture Fund. Plus a highly structured lean orientated training and mentorship programme provided by Slingshot.
The programme is aimed at tech startups, rather than food and beverage product plays. Karen said that they are particularly interested in SaaS companies that have the potential to disrupt parts of the food and beverages industry including the supply and distribution chain.
