Now to Launch

Now To Launch is a business incubator that nurtures the entrepreneurialism of refugees who have an idea for a food-related start-up. Now To Launch provides the tools, networks and professional development necessary to take those ideas and cultivate them into a product or offering that is ready to launch on the market.

Asylum seekers, refugees and new migrants face significant challenges to finding employment and starting businesses. Many harbour incredibly enterprising attitudes and skills, yet are not afforded the opportunities and resources necessary for harnessing their talents to build a career. The first major hurdle is to overcome social and cultural barriers, before even considering the usual challenges that the average Australian has when it comes to working and enterprise.

Now To Launch is administered with the backing of the Victorian State Government through a LaunchVic grant; generous contributions from the public and invaluable support and mentoring provided by our collaborative Industry Partners.

Now To Launch will launch its own website soon where we will share more information. To keep up to date, especially if you are interested in becoming a participant, an Industry Partner or volunteer send us an email.
