Our Mission

FOUND, a groundbreaking research partnership between Victoria University and Startup Victoria, will unearth a grassroots profile of the Victorian founder community on an annual basis.

Victoria’s startup ecosystem has evolved. And so has its founder community. The traditional technology-diven, male-led startup stereotype has been replaced by a diverse group of creative thinkers from all backgrounds, cultures and locations. And as the industry’s grown, so has their potential, and their vision.

For the first time ever, emerging founders from across the state will have a clear means by which to tell policy makers, educational institutions and service providers exactly what they need.
