Startmate [Remote Jobs]

Employer Description

Founded in 2011, Startmate has rapidly evolved into a pivotal force within the startup landscape of Australia and New Zealand. With a focus on nurturing exceptional individuals and aiding them in building iconic companies, our accelerator and fellowship programs are at the forefront of entrepreneurial development. Our community, enriched by a network of top-tier entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, provides an unmatched support system for our cohorts.

Historically, Startmate emerged in response to a clear need for resources and guidance in the vibrant yet under-supported creative landscape of Australia. Visionaries like Niki Scevak and notable founders from Atlassian saw potential in this sector and established a mini fund. This initiative has grown into a significant influence, guiding over 110 startups to achieve a collective valuation surpassing $1 billion.

Our programs, including two accelerator cohorts annually, are distinguished by their effectiveness in fostering startup success. Participants gain access to a wealth of knowledge and investment from a committed community of VCs, mentors, and alumni. This collective effort continues to propel a multitude of startups to greater heights.

The Startmate Fellowship addresses a vital gap by providing opportunities for the ambitious yet often overlooked talent pool. This program is crucial in amplifying the growth of the tech ecosystems in both Australia and New Zealand. By challenging and supporting these ecosystems, Startmate plays an essential role in shaping a prosperous future as global advancements unfold.

Moreover, Startmate offers remote job opportunities, allowing talented individuals from various locations to contribute to and benefit from our dynamic ecosystem. This flexibility supports our goal of inclusive growth and innovation, making it possible for more people to participate in and shape the future of technology and entrepreneurship.

Through relentless support and a clear vision, Startmate not only accelerates startups but also cultivates leaders who are ready to make significant impacts. Our commitment to excellence and community empowerment continues to drive the success of both our programs and the broader tech industry in Australia and New Zealand.
