Your company is flying, great team, great tech, customers, revenue, what you need now is access to a large corporate with millions of customers. Our Scaleup program delivers this.
Great Startups often fail because they run out of two things – cash and enthusiasm. They run out of enthusiasm because they run out of cash. The best way to for Startups to thrive, is to acquire profitable customers as quickly as possible.
If you have an existing customer base, a stable product and proven team you're a Slingshot Scaleup.
Our Scaleup programs are aimed at facilitating your company into Australia’s largest corporates who already have large customer bases and proven distribution.
We are about outcomes, you will end up with a commercial relationship with the corporate and an opportunity to gain investment and mentorship from the Slingshot team.
Two thirds of Scaleups partipating in a Slingshot Scaleup program go on to raise further capital with three companies being acquired post Scaleup program.
Case Study - Villalet
The Villalet was successful in making the Jumpstart 2015 Scaleup intake.
Villalet is a full service online booking platform offering luxury villas to high-end customers.
Villalet is a full-service, online travel agent offering a unique collection of luxury villas that can be searched, researched, and safely booked with the confidence of dealing with a local Australian business. Unlike other online travel agents, Villalet offers a high level of customer service prior to booking, critical for choosing the right villa for a perfect holiday in a faraway destination.
Villalet and NRMA worked closely together to build an offering to benefit NRMA and its members while still providing a efficient way for Villalet to engage a whole new customer base.
NRMA Villas was born from this an agreement. Villalet provided a white labeled version of its solution and NRMA provided the distribution channel to its 2.4 million customers to the new product offering.
"We joined Slingshot and The NRMA in the Scale-up program with the goal to increase our exposure to a large number of travelling Australians. The relationship has proven very valuable both in connecting with the NRMA team and audience, as well as involvement in Slingshot start-up activities, raising the profile of the business"
