Startmate Open House

Twice a year, in May and November, we’ve opened our mentoring network to founders across Australia and New Zealand, in the form of 'Office Hours'.

This year, we are taking it three steps further. Introducing Startmate 'Open House', a biannual, 2-week, entirely free, virtual festival packed with 1:1 mentoring, founder-to-founder relationship building, fireside chats and functional workshops.

You can think of it as having access to the whole house, not just the home office.

Want to be matched with a been-there-done-that mentor that has experience suited to the problem you’re trying to solve? Want to meet dozens of other founders? Want exclusive insights to catapult your startup forward?

Apply for Open House today so we can match the perfect mentor to the problem you’re trying to solve and grow your network for life.
