Some of our Startups have said:

“The Slingshot and HCF program was an incredible learning experience for us to understand the complex health landscape from a technology vendor point of view and gave us the grounding in establishing key customers in Australia, we had great learnings from both Slingshot and HCF and hope to provide CancerAid to HCF members to improve health outcomes whilst reducing costs related to admissions”.

Dr Nikhil Pooviah

Co-Founder & CEO - CancerAid

"What Slingshot was able to do for us was incredible. To connect with a Corporate with the size and reputation of NRMA who not only became an investor but also a valuable customer has allowed our business to scale globally."

Justin Hales

Co-Founder - Camplify

“The program provided us with the skills to develop an excellent pitch deck, which we have used many times in presentations and pitch competitions. It has also allowed us to work closely with HCF and we are working towards delivering a Pilot of our e-health program for mothers to HCF members.”

CoVentured is a platform that helps corporates and Startups better connect

We’re also Startup founders, so we understand how slow and painful biz dev cycles with Corporates can be - wrong place, wrong contact, wrong product…. Startups need to move fast but so much time is wasted on coffee meetings with uncertain outcomes.

We help Startups identify which corporates are open to a conversation with Startups,  understand what each corporate is interested in, and we enable Startups to make the first contact with the corporate via the platform, ensuring the message is seen by the right person with the authority to engage Startups.
