Funding & Mentoring Australian Entrepreneurs

The upSIDE program is a pitch campaign for the best entrepreneurs to present their business idea to a sophisticated panel of investors and business leaders. The upSIDE program is targeting entrepreneurs or companies that have a purpose to operate in three categories:


Social Impact


Disruptive (Influence for Good)


Environment (& Cleantech)

Applicants for each category must explain their vision, their aims towards their impact, and their ROI. Applicants must have businesses registered in Australia up to five years since Start-up, with annual revenues less than $3M. We hope to provide growth or Start-up capital to companies in each category. The upSIDE program aspires towards achieving social impact, economic sustainability and environmental prosperity. This is underpinned by the vision for Entrepreneurs&Co. to drive societal, environmental impact and disruptive change for a better Australia enabling Start-ups and entrepreneurs the capital and tools to grow.
