The University of Sydney’s Incubate accelerator program has called for startups to apply for its Winter 2015 intake.
Last week, eight budding entrepreneurs presented their startup concepts before a panel of judges at University of Sydney Business School’s Sydney Genesis Final Pitch 2014 competition. The winners were chosen on the basis of having “real world” potential.
Google and INCUBATE just announced they will collaborating to expand INCUBATE’s entrepreneur development program to universities across Australia, demonstrating their commitment to investing in the future of Australian innovation.
Today the University of Sydney Union’s (USU) leading university startup accelerator program, INCUBATE, has selected the next eight startup teams for it’s Winter cycle.
While we were holidaying over summer, James Alexander and the startups of Incubate were hard at work pulling their businesses together for a February launch date. And their hard work is about to pay off with everyone getting ready for Demo Day on February the 27th. This is actually the first time that Incubate has run their Incubator program and so in their own way, Incubate is following a startup path. We talked to James about how Incubate came to be and you can be part of it next round.
INCUBATE is the University of Sydney Union’s inaugural business-focused program which is open to all students, researchers and recent alumni (2009 onwards) of the University of Sydney. The program will fund eight high potential startup projects with $5,000 business grants, co-working space over the summer break and mentoring from some of Australia’s most recognised entrepreneurs.
