The Slingshot Scaleup program gave Car Next Door high level access and awareness among the executive team at NRMA.  It got us a seat at the table across from the right people within the organisation. It really felt that Slingshot were ‘on my side’ and seemed to genuinely care about the founders.

Joining the Slingshot-Qantas AVRO Accelerator Program provided us with the perfect foundation to launch our company, gain brand accreditation from one of Australia’s leading brands and open doors to start sales conversations with numerous market leaders across their industries in Australia and New Zealand. If you are looking for a fast-track to business success I would compel you to apply!

The Lion Unleashed program opened doors to opportunities and learnings that would otherwise have take months or even years to progress. Slingshot were instrumental in creating this navigation process so we could identity projects within Lion and get something off the ground. As a founder, and before applying, I recommend getting to know Caltex as they are a diverse business with a broad range of customers so do your homework.

Liftango was simply an idea and prototype before the Slingshot accelerator and wouldn’t be the business today without the program! It helped create a solid base before starting to grow and expand our amazing team. Additionally, many of the contacts we met through the program are now friends and still helping us out today – some corporate contacts even evolved into partnerships and funding partners.

As a Scaleup, we were based in the US when we found out about the Catalyst program. It was definitely worth jumping on a plane and pitching given HCF’s commitment and Slingshot’s proven model for corporate engagement. By the end of the three months program, HCF went beyond investment into Curo to supporting it in piloting its’ in-home monitoring service with HCF members.

Camplify started as an idea and we knew we had to find the right people to work with. Partnering with a corporate is one way to make sure you have success right off the bat. We have had amazing success through Slingshot and within 3 months they assisted us in validating our idea. If you are an investor, Startup or corporate, you should get involved. Without Slingshot there would be no Camplify.

Half the battle of innovating with corporates is identifying the decision-makers, getting them in a room and maintaining focus across political agendas and busy work schedules. The Slingshot model can shorten sales cycles by up to 75% and generate genuine buy-in from corporate executives giving young companies the best chance of success with their corporate customers.
