Is there a cost to participate in the program?

No, there are no costs to you if you are selected to participate in the pitch. We don’t take equity either. Startups are required to cover their own travel costs to the Melbourne and Singapore pitch events.

What types of startups are you looking for specifically?

  • If your startup is working on something which has uses for any of the challenges, then we're interested.

  • Not sure? Apply anyway and we’ll let you know.

  • If you think you can't solve any of the business challenges but believe your product can benefit  Income, then we still want to hear from you. Please also apply through the application process.

What does the application process entail?

Once you're reviewed our problem statement, go ahead and make your application via our Apply page. Be as thorough as possible.

Following a review of all applications, a shortlist of applicants will be invited to either pitch in Melbourne or Singapore for both CC and Future Starter team members.

Successful startups chosen to conduct a paid POC with Future Starter will be contacted directly.


Collective Campus is a corporate innovation hub with offices in Melbourne and Singapore. We help corporates on their innovation strategy, have our own co-working space, and run accelerator programs. We have run program such as:
- APAC’s first dedicated legal services accelerator program with Mills Oakley.
- Village Digital Xperience (VR/AR) Accelerator
- Charter Hall (PropTech) Accelerator.

Since opening in 2014 as a tech coworking space, we’ve been home to over 100 startups in our Melbourne office including UBER, Zomato, Law Advisor and Booktopia.

We delivered the 2018 ANZ Startup Matching Program for Income.


We receive hundreds of applications and review each one individually. We will respond to everyone with a yes or no, but it may take a few weeks after applications close. We aim to get back to everyone at two different stages throughout the program (please see dates on main page).

What is the time commitment?

Those successfully shortlisted to pitch Future Starter will need to set aside a day for the actual pitch event. Should you be selected to undertake a POC with Future Starter, a separate discussion will take place around time commitments.

Where is the pITCH located?

The details of the Showcase and Pitch event will be announced soon.

Does participating in the program guarantee further investment or usage of my product by any of the corporate sponsors?

No, it is entirely at Future Starter's discretion if they choose to invest in your startup or engage with you in a pilot program during or after the program. Think of your time at the program as an opportunity to build relationships and to demonstrate what you can do.
Undertaking a POC is a paid engagement, which is better than investment - it's a paying client.
