Home Affairs
The Startup Advisory Panel (SAP) is a key feature of the Global Talent – Employer Sponsored (GTES) program for the Startup stream. The Startup Advisory Panel is an independent panel providing valuable insight regarding the genuineness of startups. They have been appointed by the Minister following consultation with stakeholders to endorse eligible startups for access to the GTES program. The SAP includes members from a cross-section of the Australian startup ecosystem and emerging tech sector industries. Membership of the panel will remain flexible and the Minister retains the ability to appoint additional members as required. At present, the panel has six members.
