“BlueChilli builds tech startups.

Our world-class accelerator programs – such as SheStart, CityConnect and our new program with Coca-Cola Amatil, Xcelerate – bring together startup founders and industry partners to build impactful, investable global startups.

We have the expertise to help remove the biggest barriers to startup success, which are:

• Technology: We will build the first product and help founders take it to market
• Traction: We will help founders find their first customers and pilots
• Tender: Invest in their business and help them to raise future capital
• Team: Help them to establish their first team, advisors and board member/s

We exist to empower early-stage startup founders to build impactful, investable global tech startups that solve the world’s greatest challenges. BlueChilli produces successful startups and we’re proud to name our success as our biggest differentiator. We have invested in and built over 100 startups, achieved 3 exits, 1 IPO and are close to achieving our target of graduating startups from the program with a 75% rate of commercial pilots in place. By 2017, our portfolio startups raised $164M with a market capitalisation of ~$850M.

Our success is credited to a unique approach to inclusive entrepreneurship and our process for selecting, validating and accelerating early stage startups, most often with founders who are at the very start of their first startup journey.”
