To help us get there, we are expanding our support of the tech startup community through a new Google for Entrepreneurs partnership with Fishburners, Australia’s largest startup hub. This partnership will allow Fishburners to expand and improve their physical space, increase access to mentors and training for startups, and create new programs for female entrepreneurs.
Fishburners is also joining our global Google for Entrepreneur network of more than 30 startup hubs from London and Nairobi. We are hitting the ground running with Fishburners. On Thursday, Aussie startups from Fishburners will pitch their business to a panel of judges for the chance to take part in BlackBox Connect, a two-week immersion program in Silicon Valley. The winning team will be selected with special guest Fadi Bishara, CEO of Blackbox on June 19 from Fishburners. If you’re in Sydney, come join us at the event.
Supporting local tech startups is vital to Australia's future economy. We know the talent, drive and potential for innovation is all here; we hope to help realise the full potential of Aussie entrepreneurs.
