Many startup companies come to Alchemy Equities seeking to raise startup capital. Without a team of experienced entrepreneurs, established business or prototype in place, this can be prohibitive. Some, particularly those in the software/ITC or green arenas, may benefit from becoming part of an incubator program – supported by experienced entrepreneurs and like-minded companies with access to mentors, angel investors and links to the Venture Capital and government grants networks in Australia. Incubators in Australia are in a growth phase in Australia. Some provide office facilities and access to advisors. Some however invest and mentor directly in selected companies and are competitive to access. Alchemy has compiled a summary of the more dynamic incubators in Australia to assist with the search: AngelCube - Provides Mentorship, seed capital, connections and opportunities for Australian web startups. http://www.angelcube.com/ ANZ Innovyz START– a 3 month ‘accelerator’ program designed to help start ups, existing businesses and entrepreneurs with innovative ideas to get started and grow.
