Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) and Startup Victoria have established a new partnership that connects the start-up community, experts and entrepreneurs with the events industry.

This partnership is a strategic alignment that will strengthen industry relationships, provide a forum for sharing experiences and expertise, and inform potential products and services to help shape the MCEC customer experience.

MCEC and Startup Victoria aim to foster innovation and entrepreneurship

Natalie O’Brien, CEO of MCEC, said the partnership can help MCEC progress the innovation journey it has embarked on over recent years. “We have lots of ideas to explore and we want to embed creativity, innovation and an entrepreneur mindset into our business,” O’Brien said.

“The partnership with Startup Victoria will help us navigate the large and complex start-up ecosystem and connect with people who can help us achieve our innovation goals.”

Meanwhile, Dickie Currer, head of partnerships at Startup Victoria, looks forward to connecting with “CEC’s people and community partners and tapping into the expertise and influence of its Club Melbourne ambassadors and thought leaders”.

The first Startup Victoria event to be supported by MCEC as a venue partner is the Health & Wellbeing Pitch Night. The pitch night on February 28 will showcase startups that are making the world a better place by improving health and well-being in innovative ways. Further pitch nights will be held throughout the year.

Looking forward, MCEC is preparing to host the Global Entrepreneurs Congress when it comes to Melbourne for the first time in September 2023. This event will bring together more than 2,500 delegates from 170 countries to share success stories and foster collaboration.
