StartMate is a group of startup executives that offers mentorship and seed financing solutions to founders of internet and software businesses based in Australia.
The firm works to help technically-focused founders create world-class companies that solve customer problems. It typically invests AUD $50,000 for a 7.5% equity stake.
StartMate’s three-month program offers a $25,000 investment, mentorship from more than 20 successful founders, sage legal counsel, and a two week trip to Silicon Valley. At the conclusion of the program there are two demo days, one in Sydney and the other in Silicon Valley, where the chosen startups present in front of early-stage investors.
StartMate was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Sydney, Australia.
