Meet the 2021 Plus Eight Sprint cohort!

Jun 8, 2021

Over the next six weeks, 16 businesses will be joining us weekly at the Murdoch University CBD space for facilitated sessions, masterclasses, mentoring opportunities and peer to peer check ins as they aim to turn these early-stage startups into sustainable businesses.


Jason Bloxsidge, Founder at Learnbite, is one the founders taking part in this year’s program, who shared that he’s mostly looking forward to learning how to structure his business, and get it ready to market. Clayton Byrne, Strategic Partnerships Manager at The Home Visit Network is looking for a likeminded community. “Having flown solo up until now, I am very much looking forward to sharing my business idea with like minded startup founders in the program and in turn listening to their own business ideas.” Clayton shared.


Under the guidance of program facilitators from Skills of the Modern Age, the Sprint program is the perfect foundation for business growth. With access to mentors, alumni and the Spacecubed community, the program assists founders who are looking for that next step. 


Jason Brown, founder at Knowhow shared that he is looking forward to learning new skills. ”What I'm looking forward to the most is guidance from mentors and the accountability that it brings. I don't know what I don't know, so spending time with people who know more than me is massively helpful!”


Four participating businesses were lucky enough to receive a fully-funded position in the program after pitching their way through Startup Weekend in Perth earlier in the year. The event that runs for 54-hours and assists budding entrepreneurs to find their passion, and create a business idea by Sunday evening, has allowed for a strong pipeline of new talent, ideas and solutions in the Perth startup community.


“We have had some incredible success stories through Startup Weekend, and I’m excited to see the businesses with the best pitches progress through the Sprint program and continue to grow their ideas.” Amilia Bakhtiar Project Lead shared.
