It's been a dynamic program, and we've loved seeing how far our ON Accelerate6 cohort have come over the past few months! The cohort has risen to every challenge, leapt into every activity, and given the adventure that is ON Accelerate their all.

Kicking off at Bootcamp last November, our 11 teams demonstrated why their technology has the potential to change the world and they've held onto that momentum ever since.

Immersion Week was the teams' first taste of the full ON Accelerate experience, and over five days in Sydney the cohort were given a crash course in science commercialisation, including prototyping, resilience, team building, refining their business model canvas, and pitching.

Adapting to change

This year's cohort experience took a different turn in March, when ON Accelerate was transformed into a digital delivery for the first time in response to COVID-19. Despite the transition from face-to-face workshops to online conference rooms, the cohort continued to thrive and develop their projects.

The content remained the same, covering topics such as building business models, risk management, team building, and media training, and the cohort was supported throughout by high-quality facilitators and mentors – all from the comfort of the cohort's own homes.

See the cohort at ON Demo Night!

The digital transformation wasn't just for the program – this year we've also transformed Demo Night into a virtual experience. Taking the event online means we can share it with the whole ecosystem, regardless of where you are in the world!

At Demo Night on Thursday 4 June, you'll have a chance to hear our 11 teams pitch their idea to shape the future. After the cohort has presented, you'll be able to chat more to teams of your choice during virtual networking.

Now that the formal learning element of ON Accelerate has wrapped up, the teams have a chance to reflect on their goals as a company, plan their next steps, celebrate their successes, and prepare for Demo Night. We hope to see you there!
