NOW IN ITS THIRD YEAR

Are you a Queensland based Startup or business servicing the travel or tourism market?

The Horizons Accelerator will help grow your business.

Queensland is recognised as one of the world’s leading travel destinations and providers of world class experiences and businesses in this sector.

Have you got an early stage Queensland based Startup or business that can help propel the local travel and tourism industry? Would you like access to funding, founder coaching and customers to accelerate your business?

Sponsored by the Queensland Government and Amadeus, the Horizons Accelerator is on the hunt for local (QLD based), early stage businesses. Slingshot, Australia’s leading accelerator, has been appointed to run Horizons for founders that qualify.

This accelerator is low touch. You are only required to be in Brisbane for 3 content chapters over 12 weeks, finishing with an Investment Pitch Night that could change your future.

If you are interested in funding, founder development and access to customers and broader business networks, we want to hear from you.

You will also have access to over $500,000 of additional value.
