ACCELERATOR EDITION #3
👋Welcome to Edition #3 of Sailist's Fortnightly Roundups! We have heaps of programs on again this fortnight:
> 4 accelerators open
> 5 programs & resources

To fit the extra accelerators and resources, I decided to forego recommending events for the fortnight. As its replacement, here is a link to a startup events calendar, maintained and recently released publicly by Bryce Chee, a great friend of mine. You can even add it to your Google Calendar to stay notified!

Next Wednesday, you will receive the fortnight's roundup on all things startup funding, which will be written and compiled by Warwick from Startup-Funding.com.au.
