The Startup ecosystem mapping project aims to establish a map and online platform showing the locations of potential start-up partners and resources in Melbourne and Bengaluru in collaboration with an Indian startup focused firm, Brand Lab. Its mapping facilitates city-centric ecosystem players to navigate, connect and explore collaborative opportunities between organisations and entrepreneurs. The project will initially run in the unofficial startup capitals of Bengaluru and Melbourne, detailing institutions, incubator/accelerator funds, co-working spaces, network groups and media platforms involved with startups in each city. The map will provide contact details, the physical locations within the city, and an overall context to the city’s startup evolution and its current scenario. It will be available in print format (designer foldable twin city map), digital version and website/platform to host all the details in a virtual map.
