muru-D Melbourne is our latest program to launch and brings the knowledge, experience and network built up across our four existing locations to Victoria. We offer $75k in seed funding as well as coworking space within Telstra Labs. Located in Melbourne’s CBD, Telstra Labs provides our founders unique access to in-house experts and resources across IoT, machining and fabrication, blockchain, drones, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and humanoid robotics (Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence).

Founders receive coaching from our Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR), access to muru-D’s global network of mentors, investors and alumni as well as an international trip to a startup hub. They can also leverage muru-D’s presence across Australia and Asia, as well as our alumni manager located in the US, to gain fast insights, access and connections in those markets. It is an environment conducive to building successful global businesses and developing resilient founders.
