Spacecubed has announced the 17 selected startups that will be invited to its 2022 Plus Eight Accelerator Bootcamp.

Each company has made the first step towards accessing a potential $500,000 pool of seed funding. The selected entrepreneurs will attend a weekend boot camp where they can pitch their businesses to their team, program partners and hosts.

Following the Pitching Bootcamp, a smaller number will be chosen for Phase One where they will move into a ten-week sprint. Here they will pitch, pivot and hustle towards Phase Two, when the investment capital kicks in.

This is the program’s seventh consecutive year. Since inception, the program has invested over $1.5 million into startups and facilitated around a further $12 million in follow-on investment. The portfolio valuation has so far totalled $101 million.

“Plus Eight has helped us take our business to the next level, connecting us to the best in Perth’s startup ecosystem and afforded us invaluable time with experienced mentors that have challenged us to dream big and think globally,” said James Tang, co-founder of Ready Team One, who participated in the 2021 instalment of the program.

“Over the past few months, we have been lucky enough to be surrounded by an amazing group of mentors, supporters and other founders who have helped us refine our internal processes and accelerate our growth trajectory to sign 6 additional venues this year,” added fellow participant Grace Tate, co-founder of Snackr.
