VC Catalyst is locked in for three more years!

12th November 2021

We’re thrilled to announce we will be extending our partnership with LaunchVic to deliver VC Catalyst for the next three years. The renewed partnership reflects a $1.6 million investment from LaunchVic, and will enable a further 75 investors to complete the program. 

VC Catalyst launched in 2019, and since then has supported more than 60 investors to unlock a collective $15 million in startup investment. We’re stoked to be continuing the journey, and can’t wait to continue working with our rockstar facilitators and guest speakers to deliver an immersive program for the next wave of venture investors. 

Reflecting on the announcement, our new Director of Innovation & Enterprise, Nick Kaye, said the opportunity to continue to deliver VC Catalyst was welcome news for Wade Institute. 

‘Over the past three years VC Catalyst has provided active investors with the tools and skills they need to make successful early-stage, high-growth venture capital investments,’ he said.

‘The successes of our alumni prove the value of the program, and we are proud to continue our partnership with LaunchVic to deliver the next generation of startup success stories.’

The next VC Catalyst program will be offered online in May 2022, with applications now open. If you’d like to find out more, get in touch with our Program Director Rosh Ghadamian, or visit
