The 11 startups the UNSW Founders invested in as part of its 2020 10x accelerator program make their public debut over the coming week as part of two Demo Nights.
The first, the 10x Demo Night, is this afternoon, October 28.
The 2020 cohort ranges from a robotic gripper that mimics human dexterity, to a mobile docketing system that replaces the need for paper receipts and image software for fashion Bandicoot Imaging. Like all accelerators in the Covid-19 era, the program has been delivered remotely through the University of NSW. 10x is for startups founded by UNSW students, staff or alumni.
Around 75 startups applied for the three-month program with each of the finalists – hailing from NSW, the ACT, Victoria and Queensland – each receiving a $20,000 investment from UNSW.
Some have already attracted additional funding while others have yet to hold their first raise.
Tonight’s Demo Night kicks off at 5pm. Next Wednesday, UNSW Founders will hold a seperate Demo Night for the four startups involved in the UNSW Founders 10x Health accelerator.
Health 10x was designed and delivered in partnership with The George Institute of Global Health. The ventures involved have a focus on the potential to improve healthcare in emerging markets and under-served populations.
Both events are online and free to attend
