As our community grows and develops, we’re seeing a greater demand for not just local opportunities for startups, entrepreneurs and small businesses, but for national and global opportunities too.
As such, we’re teaming up with muru-D, the startup accelerator backed by Telstra, in partnership with our property partner at FLUX, Hawaiian, and Seven West Media to establish Perth’s first true global accelerator program - the Plus Eight program.
With our local Perth time zone being GMT+8, the Plus Eight accelerator powered by muru-D with their strong presence in Australia and Asia, will work with Spacecubed’s experienced team to provide global opportunities for up to 10 local startups.
A program built on global partnerships
“We are hugely excited to add the Spacecubed partnership to the ever-growing muru-D family. They've worked tirelessly to support the WA startup ecosystem and I believe they're the perfect team to help us continue to foster more amazing Aussie startups. Brodie McCulloch and the management team at Spacecubed have impressed us from day one with their depth of experience and commitment and we can't wait to get cracking to find our first crop of startups,” muru-D co-founder Annie Parker said.
Keeping any further details of the Plus Eight accelerator program well under wraps until our launch night next week, here’s what you can do to find out more and give your startup, small business and local ideas the best shot at becoming global companies;

"We are looking for ambitious founders and startups who have a global outlook. muru-D’s mission is to accelerate truly global Australian startups and Perth, which shares the same time zone as most of Eastern Asia, is a great place to do this," said Spacecubed's Programs Manager, Tom Riordan.
