muru-D takes on 10 more start-ups


Telstra-backed accelerator muru-D has announced its latest intake.

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.

"Over the next six months, our teams will enter a series of learning experiences to accelerate their thinking, advance their mindset and bring focus to their venture.

"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.
