As a part of the Geelong Small Business Festival, Runway, in partnership with LaunchVic are excited to welcome Startups and small businesses to attend the Runway Geelong Open Day.

We are encouraging the Geelong (and surrounds) business community to come together, connect and learn locally and take advantage of what’s on over during the Geelong Small Business Festival.  

During our Open Day, you will get the chance to meet other like-minded entrepreneurs and learn more about our Incubator program. LaunchVic will be sharing their knowledge through a range of one-on-one sessions on topics such as:

  • how to start a business,
  • building community engagement through events,
  • pitching,
  • applying for grants

Did we mention that we are offering free hot desks for the entire?

To finish off the day, we will be hosting a separate panel discussion and networking event focussing on the continued renewal of Geelong, how it is quickly becoming an attractive place to start or move a business to, and what the future looks like. You can join this interactive session with light refreshments on offer. Our expert panel includes Andrew Hamilton, Director of Hamilton Group, who have recently just taken out an award for Australia’s Best Urban Renewal Project for their amazing Pivot City Innovation Precinct in North Geelong!
