Energy and persistence conquer all things


Start Up Incubator

The whole purpose of a start up incubator is to assist both the entrepreneur and the business to develop, grow and flourish. In order to successfully achieve these outcomes, we believe that you need to create a collaborative start-up ecosystem. We have achieved this be creating a co working space within which we focus on outcome driven services, and bring in mentors and professional advisors and partners to ensure each aspect of your needs are met, at the appropriate time you need them.

Many early stage businesses are seeking access to capital and advisors. We provide both. We work with founders to understand the opportunity and the amount of capital which will be required to attain the maximum potential opportunity in the shortest possible time. We connect the business with the appropriate funders and what we seek is strategic investment that does more than just get cash in the door, it opens new doors to what your business needs to achieve its growth objectives (e.g. partners, clients, technology).

Pre Seed Incubator

Mktplace Ventures is unique in Australia in that it focusses on pre-seed start ups in its incubator. That is a very early stage start up, sometimes even in the idea stage. What we are investing in are big ideas, and people that are able to take these ideas from inception to a global market. Have you got what it takes. Because of the high risk nature of this stage in investing, we not only understand that your venture may take some time to get traction, but you need a sounding board to ensure that your idea fits well with the market that you have identified. Quite often, this process works in conjunction with building an Minimum Viable Product (‘MVP’), even though we prefer to focus on an MDP (Delightful Product).

A technology incubator is simply a start up incubator that focuses on technology start ups. Whilst this is not exclusively our domain) we like to see any good founder and idea get to market, we have great experience and expertise in software, hardware and marketplaces. We have experience and relationships with many universities around the globe and can often leverage this expertise for your benefits.

It may sound unfair, but your problems are not unique in business. Your situation has been faced by many of businesses and business leaders before you and, in all likelihood, unless you are solving this problem with your start up, will be faced by many others after you.

The secret of good mentorship is being able to work with someone who not only understands the challenges of the business (e.g technology, money, staff, clients) but understands your challenges (doubt, fear, motivation, excessive work).

By bringing in the years of experience and experts in the field, we make sure you can speak to the right person at the right time and have someone who not only guides you, helps you sort the wheat from the chaff, but lifts you up and inspires you with business insights that allow you to persevere (the key founder ingredient).

Shared / Collaborative Office Space (shared space incubator)

In many places, you may find simple office space which is commonly called a shared space incubator. Mktplace Ventures provides a collaborative shared space in full knowledge that it’s not just the space you are after. We understand that you need access to skills, services and people who can assist you and your business and help drive you forward with networks, ideas, solutions and focus.

We don’t take anyone into our shared space. You need to be able to contribute to the start up ecosystem, or the start up eco system needs to be able to serve you and your start up.
