Startup Kaffeine

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Upstairs Startup Hub Bathurst is launching a new program called Startup Kaffeine, to teach the art of entrepreneurship in the Central West Region.

In October of 2018, Upstairs was able to secure funding from Jobs For NSW through the Local Startup Kaffeine programme for early-stage startups and will kick start an investment pathway for Startups looking to gain funding. Startup Kaffeine will also improve outcomes for startups by forming an alliance of startup spaces in the Central West region that will be supported by online resources, live streaming and collaboration.

Startup Kaffeine is a short, sharp, engaging course that will run for 2 hours per week over six weeks at venues near you with some classes also being run online. Startup Kaffeine was designed by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs in regional and rural Australia. Julia Learson, the Head of Community at Upstairs Startup Hub, is leading this project with a focus to build the entrepreneurship ecosystem in the Central West.

Startup Kaffeine encourages anyone with a good idea to take that leap to learn how to be an entrepreneur and grow their idea into a viable business. Over six exciting weeks, the new startups will be surrounded by a cohort of other aspiring entrepreneurs to be mentored and supported by local and international business experts, resulting in a live pitch to potential investors, customers and supporters, and a professional promo video for their website.

The course begins on Wednesday, 15 May 2019 at 10 am. Apply now via or call Julia Learson on 0411 337 444
