Our Team


The team behind the Breakout Accelerator brings together rural know-how, creativity and drive with the power and reach of international networks and expertise.

ACRE and SecondMuse developed and launched the Breakout Accelerator because the two organisations share a commitment to building communities that can support entrepreneurs and innovators. Both are passionate about contributing to a thriving rural Australia.

ACRE is informed by international best practice in rural community rejuvenation and has been applying these principles and programs in Victoria since 2013. The organisation has deep understanding of regional enterprise capacity building.

SecondMuse is about building resilient future economies that provide for both people and the planet. As a leading innovation agency, SecondMuse excels at developing global networks that deliver and support acceleration and incubation programs for innovators.

Combined, the Breakout Accelerator team members offer a strong track record of connecting and supporting innovators by identifying new markets, attracting investment and sharing expertise.
