Why should you apply?

Successful applicants are enrolled in an intensive 3+3 month development program; where businesses will be asked build a plan, validate their technology and business model, and produce a working prototype of their product or service to test with customers.

The program culminates with a road show, where portfolio companies will pitch their health or medical technology business to angel and VC investors in Australia and the USA or Europe.

1. Pre-seed investment in your business from active investors.

2. Access to highly experienced mentors with industry connections and start-up know-how.

3. Ignition labs drives you towards tangible business outcomes through a structured business development program.

4. Work alongside other passionate founders in a supportive and vibrant start-up ecosystem.

5. Get introductions and pitch to potential follow-on investors in Australia, the USA and Europe.

What do you get?


On completion of the accelerator program, portfolio companies will be taken on 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 mentors, each with entrepreneurial experience, skills and experience in the medical technology industry, or a significant medtech industry and investor network.


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


Successful applicants will receive a $25,000 investment in return for 7.5% equity. This values each business at $308,000 on entry into the seed accelerator program. We call this cash injection “noodle money” but it’s there to be used for market validation activities.
