MAP announces 2014 Entrepreneurial Fellows

Wednesday 4 June 2014

The Melbourne Accelerator Program is incredibly pleased to announce the startups that will participate in the MAP14 Startup Accelerator.

The Entrepreneurial Fellowships include $20k AUD funding, office space, mentoring and unparalleled networking opportunities.  The startups will also travel to Sydney and Silicon Valley for investor meetings.

MAP Manager, Rohan Workman, stated that he was “delighted with the quality of applications in 2014.  Choosing the final six was incredibly tough but we’re very pleased with the six selected and look forward to helping them grow into viable businesses”.

After a very competitive selection process the six startups that have been awarded Entrepreneurial Fellowships are:

  • Pathobin is a digital pathology hub paired with a scanning robot that makes it easy and affordable to digitise microscope slides. Pathobin improves patient diagnosis, cancer research and education through digital pathology.
  •  xLabs is developing a world-first eye-gaze tracking software that works with a single ordinary webcam. The software knows what you’re looking at as you sit in front of your computer, without restricting your movement or needing continual recalibration. It will be released as a software development kit to create a community of applications for the gaze-aware web.
  • Brosa is a marketplace that helps industrial designers manufacture and sell unique homeware products to consumers who are tired of buying from generic mass manufactured brands.
  • SCANN3D is a 3D visualisation service to pioneer the next generation of real estate marketing content. Our website and mobile app allow homebuyers to experience the 3D virtual inspections as if they were physically there.
  • Financial Ask makes financial advice accessible and affordable for everyone. We connect financial advisors with those seeking advice through our platform to empower those who could not previously afford it.
  • Quanticare Technologies creates solutions for healthcare that enable data driven clinical encounters through the development of novel monitoring and tracking technology. Our first product is a sensor system for walking frames that will facilitate better mobility and help prevent falls in the elderly.

The MAP14 Startup Accelerator will officially launch on Thursday 10 July, tickets for which can be obtained here.  Any media enquiries can be directed to map@eng.unimelb.edu.au.
