How To Apply

FoodLab's program is specifically designed to bring all the resources needed to grow a successful food business into one place for those facing high barriers to entry. 

In order to join our community of food business owners, we encourage you to complete the following things:

Attend a Business Plan Workshop

Each month, FoodLab hosts an in-depth business plan workshop over zoom. These sessions cover the basics of food business plans and are highly recommended for those who are interested in joining the program. 

These sessions are free and open to the public, but please register ahead of time. 

Schedule a 1:1 meeting with an expert

Sign up to take advantage of a one-on-one meeting with a member of the FoodLab Sydney team. This is a great opportunity to have an experienced team member answer questions you might have about your application, your business plan, or your business idea. These are free sessions and are held in-person at Sydney University. Individual meeting links are sent out two weeks before the day. Please ensure you attend the business plan workshop before attending one of these sessions.

Submit an application

In order to apply for the program, you need to have supplied the following to our team:

  • an application (download below)

  • a business plan

  • a letter of recommendation for the program

  • your resume

Applications must be delivered in person or submitted via email to apply@foodlabsydney.org.au before the application deadline by 5pm. Only completed applications will be considered.
