The program includes:

  • three days of intensive workshops
  • one-on-one sessions with subject matter experts from KPMG Australia and US-based Advance advisors
  • access to potential enterprise customers and investors
  • 10 days in the US
  • roundtables with investors and key figures from the Australian start-up community

“Advance and KPMG’s elevate61 program saved my company over $200,000. The US component of the program was so incredibly beneficial and extraordinary access to US market expertise which would have taken us two years to access on our own.” - Brad Couper, CEO, simPRO
