muru-D has selected 10 start-ups to join its new cohort in Sydney (SYD6).
Participants receive $75,000 in seed capital, access to mentors and industry professionals, and a curriculum designed to suit individual teams of founders.
"The muru-D accelerator program is uniquely positioned to respond to founder needs with the essentials for growth that will continue to challenge and evolve their startup," said muru-D head Julie Trell.
"And at the end of the six months, the start-ups will put everything they've learnt to the test as they pitch to investors at a showcase event attended by the who's who of the Australian startup ecosystem,"
The start-ups joining the program are:
Agrinet – farm-wide Wi-Fi networks
Clipboard – school extracurricular program management
GeoSnapShot – photo sales platform
Luboo – child tracking wristband
Littlescribe – digitising, sharing and printing children's writing and illustrations
Pioneera – predicting and preventing workplace stress
Personifi – personal loan marketplace
Seer Data & Analytics – finding, sharing and using data to solve social problems collaboratively
Staybil – workforce geo-optimisation
WallSync – workshop digitisation
The entrepreneur in residence for SYD6 is start-up industry veteran and former tech journalist, Alan Jones, who has already mentored hundreds of founders.
"I've worked with many of Australia's best-known start-up accelerators, but it's long been an ambition of mine to serve as an entrepreneur-in-residence for a muru-D program. I'm stoked at the strength of the teams in this year's SYD6 cohort; I'm looking forward to bringing my 20+ years of tech start-up experience as a founder, angel investor and accelerator mentor to the program," said Jones.
