Introduction to Kickstarter Challenge

The Kickstarter Challenge is back for 2024! We’re giving another five finalists the opportunity to take centre stage and pitch their new business idea for the chance to secure a share of $60,000 in equity-free funding! Finalists will also score a paid trip to the nation’s capital and support for the journey ahead with mentoring sessions, media training and more.

2024 categories

What improvements can be made to address health and wellbeing challenges facing Australians?

What is a sustainable solution to help protect and safeguard the climate?

What innovative idea helps to empower or provide value to the community as a whole or for a specific community?

What software, mobile application, or other technology solution can improve or automate traditional forms of finance or commerce for businesses and consumers alike?

You may also pursue the Popular Vote, where the winner qualifies based on the number of votes received between the time submissions open and close. Entries in the popular vote must also fit within one of the four categories above.
