Over the last few months, Spacecubed and Plus Eight have been working alongside CORE Innovation Hub to deliver our pre-accelerator program to female founders in the energy and resources sector.

With a focus on supporting female founders, we developed this eight week entrepreneurship program to support aspiring entrepreneurs develop their business concepts, be connected with mentoring and assistance building networks throughout Australia, as well as give them access to our local alumni platform. 

Throughout the last few weeks, we’ve hosted facilitated workshops to explore a focus topic, created virtual connections with mentors to hear first hand their experience and advice and worked through practical assignments with peer-to-peer check-ins all while leveraging an online platform with structured, customised and curated content to boost the learnings for each participant.

When asked what she was most looking forward to in the program, Annette, founder of Tekuma shared, “I’m mostly looking forward to digging deep into the mining and energy sector. We’re keen to see what partners we might establish there and what new applications we can see our technology making an impact on training, safety, and ease of use.”

While for Michelle, founder of Hyperspectral Intelligence Inc. she was looking forward to diving into the Australian market. “Our company is mainly based in Canada, but my husband and I lived in Adelaide from 2006-2009, and I am looking forward to reconnecting with Australian geologists who are working in the mineral exploration and mining industry.”

With the last eight weeks of learnings and practical experience put into place, join us for a Virtual Pitch Night to explore how each participant has grown during the program, and where they’re headed next.
