Helping business be a force for good is the focus for the third Sourdough Business Pathways pre-accelerator program, starting on March 31.

According to Sourdough organisers, the eight week immersive Flinders University New Venture Institute program is based on Lean Startup methodologies, and is for new businesses and founders wanting to take their business idea from conception to a minimum viable product (MVP) with purpose and impact.

Organisers say the program will be facilitated by Sourdough Business Pathways’ expert-in-residence Ashleigh Camm, Todd Sotheren from the Byron Bay Chamber of Commerce, Diego Trigo, Natalie Woods, and Marc Sofer along with others.

Participants will be mentored, guided and supported throughout the program by these highly experienced facilitators, as well as other industry and investor mentors who will share invaluable feedback to help participants develop their ideas or business further. 

Early stage ideas

‘It’s for aspiring founders or existing founders with an early stage idea or business that’s aiming to be a force for good in the world,’ says Ashleigh Camm.

The pre-accelerator culminates in a demo night, where participants pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and a community audience.

Organisers add that post-program participants will be supported to take the next step through Sourdough’s established links, with local co-working hubs, chambers, professional development resources, investment groups, and other accelerator and incubator programs focused on purposeful business.

Expressions of Interest are open for the program intake, which runs from March 31 – June 2.
