QUT Creative Enterprise Australia launches dedicated creative industries accelerator
QUT Creative Enterprise Australia (CEA) has launched Collider, an accelerator program designed for the creative industries.
Though, as the name suggests, CEA is focused on helping creative businesses through its coworking spaces, investment fund, expert assistance, and Creative3 creative tech conference, its only dedicated accelerator program to this date has centered on the fashion niche.
The new Collider program will give 10 early stage creative tech startups, working around areas such as wearable tech, virtual and augmented reality, 3D printing, gaming, music, film, IoT and more, access to CEA’s coworking space, international mentors, masterclasses, and $20,000 in seed funding in exchange for four percent equity.
Kicking off in June, the program will run for three months, with startups to be given the option to spend another eight weeks at CEA should they need further support. Read more
