Optus is a Platinum Sponsor of York Butter Factory and has continued to help grow the startup ecosystem here in Australia.
As part of their support towards the community they have started the OptusInnov8 Seed Program. They received some 80 plus applications from all around the country for the inaugural Seed Program in July last year. In November 2012 they announced their investment in two companies from Melbourne Venuemob and 121cast.
“Season 2” of the Seed Fund is now open for application. Successful entrants of the seed program will be able to work at the York Butter Factory for 3 months.
