Runway builds the capability of entrepreneurs to be successful

…so we measure Runway’s impact based on the success stories, jobs and economic outcomes of the businesses we’ve empowered to grow.

Runway brings peoples’ dreams of starting, growing or pivoting their business to life, and creates new jobs and capabilities fit for the 21st Century.

Runway IMPACT

Creating Impact in Communities

As a result of Geelong’s investment in the Runway 2017 and 2018 startup programs, 49 new jobs were created, contributing $3.6m in wages, $6.4m in gross regional product, and $16m in economic output annually – delivering an economic multiplier of 2.9 and a 1,500% return on investment. (REMPLAN data, 2020).

Runway’s Impact in Victoria

In Victoria, the Runway ecosystem has created more than 430 jobs, supporting almost $39m in annual wages and salaries. It has injected more than $145m in revenue into the state’s economy and generated at least $68m in value-added; and for every $1 generated by the businesses enabled by Runway another $1.80 was created elsewhere in the economy due to flow-on effects.
