A startup pre-accelerator program is now on offer to businesses in the Northern Rivers.

The program is the result of a partnership between Sourdough Business Pathways and the Flinders New Venture Institute and is aimed at all kinds of new founders, including those who have a day job or are studying.

Organisers say this year will have two intakes, starting on February 26.

‘Pre-accelerators support founders by providing mentoring and guidance, fostering a lean startup mindset and facilitating connections with other like-minded founders. Most importantly, they also provide access to potential investors. It’s important to note that it’s not a training program. It’s a hands-on, immersive boot camp, reliant on the founder taking the steps each week to build their business.’
