Screw failure.
You're the next success story.

Your idea is worth nothing until you bring it to life. We were busy building our own companies before we were helping entrepreneurs, and we had some ideas we thought were good enough to invest our time, money and effort into — only to fail. But we didn’t give up. We also had some big successes. Now, with all those lessons learned about how to turn an idea into a sustainable company, we can help entrepreneurs get it right the first time. Booyah!

Any entrepreneur who wants a great team supporting them needs to work with Pitchblak. They have the best model I've seen for launching new ideas.

The word on the street

Warwick Hill
Managing Director,
Microsoft Accelerator

I was lucky enough to have visited Brisbane in Sept 2016 and I was impressed by the supportive and “entrepreneur first” mentality shown by Adrian and his team at Pitchblak. Starting a business is a hard, lonely road so a supportive ecosystem is a great asset to any CEO.

Dave Gardiner
Partner,
Carthona Capital

Often the hardest step for an entrepreneur is the first one: to turn a good idea into a compelling business proposition with a proof of concept. Pitchblak helps entrepreneurs avoid the common mistakes in the early stage of a startup and ensures they are well prepared for commercialisation and capital raising. This has been a major gap in the Australian startup community and it’s exciting to see Pitchblak solve this problem.

If you are serious about getting a move on with your idea, Pitchblak is the place to go. Validation is key to making a startup successful and Pitchblak's program helps you prove that your idea will actually work. This proof means people will invest in you so you can build a great product and grow.
