Perth Landing Pad is designed to help high-growth international startups and scale-ups expand their businesses into Western Australia. The program, delivered in two stream-based approaches, provides startups with a range of support including access to online resources, connections with industry professionals, 1 on 1 mentoring, and service-based masterclasses that allow them to be fully immersed in WA’s innovation ecosystem. This combination of resources and support is designed to help international innovators establish a foothold in the Western Australian market while creating a positive impact on our local economy.
There are two ways startups can access this support through the Perth Landing Pad program, including the Inbound Stream and Cohort Stream. The Inbound Stream offers ongoing support all year round and is available both in person and virtually and is run as a self-paced program with targeted connections and business support. The Cohort Stream is a three-month program running on a yearly basis and is designed to fully immerse startups in the ecosystem, with access to a week of innovative events. This stream is run as a mix of virtual and in-person (with the in-person element required) and is set to kick start this September. (You can read more and apply directly here.)
Matt Ainsworth, Founder of Biz.Mind recently joined the Perth landing Pad program as part of the Inbound Stream. Since joining the program earlier this year, Matt has expanded his network by actively engaging in a range of community-run events, regularly hosting his own Mindset Meetup, facilitated a Morning Startup session and later this month, is set to feature in Spacecubed's Networking Evening, where he will facilitate a group activity to help members rise to their potential (RSVP here).
Perth Landing Pad provides international startups with a supportive and collaborative environment that allows them to thrive and obtain long-term residency here in WA. With applications now open, you can learn more about how the program is designed to support international innovators via our Virtual Information Session, taking place on Tuesday, May 9th from 3pm ASWT (register here).
Perth Landing Pad, powered by Spacecubed, is made possible thanks to the support of the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation and the City of Perth.
