Got a startup idea or taking your first steps as a founder?

Join Giants to get mentoring from the best people from companies like Brighte, CultureAmp, SafetyCulture, Atlassian, Dovetail, Baraja, Airbnb, and Stripe, plus VCs, angels, and impact investors.

Applications for Cohort 4 are now closed.
You can apply for Cohort 5, kicking off later in 2022 here.

Validate your idea

At the very beginning it can be hard to know what to focus on and how to get from 0 to 1.

We've brought together 130+ of the best founders, investors and operators from across the Australia and Aotearoa startup ecosystems to help you turn your startup idea into reality through 1:1 mentoring.

Supercharge your startup journey

Giants cohorts run for 12 weeks. In that time, you'll set a goal and we'll help you make it happen with access to advice, content and community.

Prior Giants participants have raised investment, hired their first CTO, found advisors, and shipped their first product in market.

Who is Giants for?

Whether you're just sketching out your idea, completing an accelerator or working full time, Giants can help you move forward.

We are looking for founders who are ambitious and curious, with a deep passion for the problem they are solving. We believe in the hungry, not the proven and invite people from all backgrounds and experiences to apply.
