An accelerator launching later this year in Australia is modeling itself on Memphis’ ZeroTo510 medical device accelerator program.
Ignition Labs near Sydney, Australia, is now taking applications for its accelerator. It will start in September and focus on health and medical technology startups, according to ssti.org. And at the end of the program in November, the companies will “engage in a roadshow” through Australia, Europe and the U.S.
The program is partly the result of conversations officials there had with Allan Daisley, director of entrepreneurship and sustainability at the Memphis Bioworks Foundation.
