CivVic Labs


Connecting government with startup innovation.

LaunchVic’s six-week CivVic Labs program sees startups apply innovative thinking to Victoria’s big challenges.

In partnership with the Victorian Government’s Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, the latest round of the program invites startups to tackle the challenge:

“How might we provide digital solutions to help Victorian consumers (households and/or businesses) improve their energy consumption or access reliable, clean and affordable energy.”

Supported by $15,000 seed funding, you’ll co-design and test your solution with policy experts and everyday consumers.

At the end of the six weeks, you’ll have the opportunity to pitch for a further $35,000 to bring your idea to life.

Applications for this challenge have now closed.
