Melbourne's West is one of the fastest growing most diverse regions in Australia.

We know that it takes time and a strong community to build successful startups. We're here to support the growing startup ecosystem. We do this by running events in and for the West.
Our meetups connect and inspire current and future entrepreneurs. Held monthly, we bring the best of the global startup ecosystem to Melbourne's West to hear and learn from their stories.

#StartWest is a collaboration between four councils - Wyndham, Hobsons Bay, Moonee Valley and Maribyrnong. We are proudly supported by LaunchVic. 


The last Wednesday of each month.

Connect with other entrepreneurs and startups.
