If you're a high-growth international company looking to expand your business to Australia, Perth Landing Pad can help you do this. With two streams of support, this program is designed to help international startups and entrepreneurs establish a foothold in Western Australia's capital city, Perth. 

Landing Pads throughout the world are designed to connect people, support collaboration, attract investors and ultimately strengthen the startup community – which is essential for creating a pipeline of future job-creating businesses and sustainable, high-value jobs here in WA.   

Through the Inbound Stream, which is available all year round, international founders and teams will have access to 90 days of support with industry  in the city, access to coworking space and community events, guidance for obtaining long-term residency and support from Spacecubed’s Programs Team.

In addition to this, Perth Landing Pad's Cohort Stream will run annually as a three month program. The cohort stream will have access to the same great benefits as the Inbound Stream, however, it has the addition of a hands-on, cohort-based 90-day in WA program, an experience with South and North West Tours, and increased support from Spacecubed’s Programs Team.

The benefits to both streams allow international startups and entrepreneurs access to:

  • A supportive community: The program provides access to a community of like-minded entrepreneurs and mentors who can provide guidance and support as you establish your business in WA.
  • Office space: Participants in the program have access to coworking space at Spacecubed, located in the heart of Perth CBD.
  • Networking opportunities: The program allows participants to engage in a range of networking events to connect with other entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders in Perth.
  • Access to resources: The program provides access to a range of resources, including legal and accounting services, marketing support, and assistance with visa applications and other regulatory requirements.
  • Cultural immersion: The program offers participants the opportunity to immerse themselves in Australian culture and gain a better understanding of the local business environment.

Perth Landing Pad is made possible thanks to the support of the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation, and City of Perth, allowing international entrepreneurs and startups to access the resources they need to establish and grow their business in Perth.
