Ignition Labs - niche technology accelerator.

2013 Health & Medtech Program Launching Soon. Standby for Ignition .

Road show

The culminating point for portfolio companies of the Ignition Labs accelerator program is an investor road show that includes a mixture of investor focused Australian and International promotional and networking events.


Ignition Labs draws its experience from a pool of cohort specific mentors. The 2013 mentors are a mix of serial entrepreneurs and professionals with skills and experience in the health and medical technology sector or a significant health technology industry and investor network.


The accelerator program arms portfolio founders with the business tools and processes necessary to validate their idea and refine their technology in a condensed time frame.


Successful applicants will initially receive a $25,000 investment. This is ideal for early stage businesses who need enough to kick-off the start-up journey.

The Ignition Labs Medtech accelerator will consider any product, including software, intended for the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring or treatment of a disease, injury or physiological process. The accelerator will focus on a subset of technologies within the medical technology sector that fit under the headings of “Instrumentation, Class 1 and 2 Devices, Diagnostics, Connected Devices or Software”. These products are likely to be low-cost hardware or software enabled products and services like those developed by Resmed, Fitbits and StethoCloud, rather than infrastructure intensive implantable devices or technologies requiring rigorous in-vivo trials like a Ventracor or Cochlear device.
