Social web 2018

The Social events are designed specifically to facilitate casual networking opportunities for iAccelerate residents, advisors, mentors, businesses and the wider Illawarra community. These events are typically not built around a topic or keynote speaker – they are about the community for the community.

 Pitch web 2018

iAccelerate Pitch Final is the culmination of our startups hard work. Each cohort of the iAccelerate program is trained in the art of pitching -this consists of formal presentation training and pitch to peer and panel feedback sessions. Attending one of these events gives you the opportunity to hear all the great ideas that are coming out of the iAccelerate resident companies. The format of the final event consists of a panel of judges, made up of investors and industry experts who, along with the audience, decide the winners. Participating startups and scaleups get 3 minutes to pitch with 5 minutes question time from the judges. We hold our Pitch final 3 times a year.

iAccelerate Demo Day is a cornerstone event for Illawarra Startups, Innovative Businesses and the University of Wollongong Staff + Students held at Innovation Campus.
