Accelerator program

The Rocket Seeder Accelerator Program is high-performance coaching, designed to help you achieve in 14 weeks what other start-ups take years to achieve.
  • We select individuals and teams with interesting and promising ideas at different stages of development.
  • Each week we’ll run a range of activities tailored to your needs, and you’ll be introduced to experts who can help you accelerate your start-up.
  • You’ll work on your start-up in Melbourne – the foodie capital of Australia – for 14 weeks.
  • Through our growing list of partners, you’ll have access to a range of facilities and expertise that you would normally find difficult and/or expensive to access.
  • There you’ll attend workshops, develop your business model, create your minimum viable product, identify and develop customers, and prepare to launch and/or scale your business.
  • In the final weeks of the program you will work to refine your pitch in preparation for meeting our investor network.
We run a range of structured activities covering key business building blocks that you’ll need to nail in order to scale.
  • Lean Startup and Pitch development
  • Value propositions
  • Business models
  • Customer validation and development
  • Channels and margins
  • Customer relationships
  • Revenue streams and pricing
  • Startup legal issues and intellectual property
  • Activities, resources, and costs
  • Partners

  • Raising capital
Every start-up is different and every founder brings their own experiences. We work with you to tailor the program to your unique stage and requirements, and bring in industry mentors to help you with the specific aspects of your business.
The 3 Cs – creativity, collaboration, and collision of ideas – is what it’s all about.
The 4th C – commitment – makes it happen.
The program is run in Melbourne at Monash University, Clayton campus. If selected, you and your team will be expected to work on your start-up full-time for the duration of the program, and join us at least one day a week at Monash University, Clayton campus.
