SparkLabs Cultiv8

Demo Day

10 September, 2019

SparkLabs Cultiv8 invests up to A$100,000 in all startups in exchange for an agreed equity position.

Each startup gets matched with 4 to 6 mentors. We consider our global mentors to be our greatest asset. Our mentors come from a range of backgrounds, some with specialised Industry experience, others with broader technology experience.

We believe that our startups will grow exponentially through weekly sessions with our world-class mentors. Every week, startups participate in weekly teaching sessions, where they have the opportunity to learn from and network with renowned Australian and international entrepreneurs. In addition during Office Hours, startups can seek intensive feedback from SparkLabs Cultiv8's Partners.


Demo Day highlights the end of our accelerator program. At this event, startups have the opportunity to pitch to eminent global investors.


Additionally, startups can gain much needed exposure and promote themselves in front of the media and influential figures from the industry.

SparkLabs provides free office space in The Global AgTech Ecosystem, the centre of Australia’s AgTech startup scene with perks ranging from cloud services, legal counsel among others.
