SPUR fires up for Ignition 2019

SPUR is firing up support for Western Australian location data startups by offering two places at this year's Curtin Growth Ignition program.

Landgate is offering one scholarship to non-Indigenous and one to Indigenous participants.

Ignition is a highly regarded intensive five-and-a-half-day course run by Curtin Business School, helping aspiring entrepreneurs to prepare their ideas for the leap to the commercial world. A mix of presentations, workshop sessions, mentoring and networking opportunities are on offer to help them take their business to the next step.

Past scholarship winners Cultured attribute a huge part of their success to the Curtin Growth Ignition program training.

Cultured co-creator Jacinta Houzer said she was able to participate in the opportunity of a lifetime by attending the program on a SPUR scholarship.

"Since completing the program, my business partner Alastair Parker and I have a much clearer understanding of what steps we need to take in order to grow, and reach our end goal," Ms Houzer said.

"The program helped us devise better ways to meet our customers' needs and provided us with amazing networking opportunities with leading Perth entrepreneurs and business people.

"SPUR powered by Landgate is doing really great things in the innovation sector. I would urge any start-up businesses in this space to apply for these scholarships to get a better understanding of the next successful steps for your business."

Curtin Ignition runs from 25 to 30 August 2019.

Applications for the SPUR powered by Landgate scholarships are open until 5 July. You can access the criteria information and more by visiting Curtin's website.
