Our Programs

We’ve built valuable
programs for founders to:

Inspire  by showcasing and promoting other founders.
Connect with similar stage peers and sharing groups.
Educate  with peer learning, workshops and mentoring.
Our programs include the LuminaX HealthTech Accelerator, which supports and grow healthtech startups in our region. We host the Gold Coast Startup Grind chapter – the world’s largest community of startups and founders delivering events, flagship conferences and programs. We provide monthly peer learning sessions for established startups via the Founders Club. And offer industry workshops through the Startup Club. We also give a monthly lunchtime Industry Insights series to provide extensive know-how and advisory. As well as offer monthly Office Hours Mentoring with prominent founders and experts delivering one-on-one sessions.

LuminaX is a 14-week Australian healthtech accelerator program designed and delivered by Cohort Innovation Space.  In 2022, we’re looking for Australian startups who are ready to launch or refine their existing products to participate in this program. Register your interest at www.luminax.com.au

Start Club is an early-stage startup program designed for founders to provide insights into launching products properly, finding product-market fit, and connecting with other founders and the ecosystem of support. This club consists of 4 workshops on the customer journey, MVP, funding & pitching. It also includes a pitch night, events, drop-in café, office hours mentoring, and access to Cohort partner perks.
