Do you have a startup idea? Would you like to learn to develop and present that idea?
The UniMelb StartUp Pitch Competition aims to activate an entrepreneurial mindset within the University’s student community. It provides students a unique opportunity to learn to develop and test a startup idea. Team up with budding entrepreneurs from across the University and learn from experts and mentors from the startup world! There will also be prizes up for grabs!
You must be a current University of Melbourne student to participate and can register as a team or as an individual. Full training and support will be provided and no prior experience is required.
Due to the evolving impacts and uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we are looking at new and exciting ways to deliver our case competitions this year. More information will follow in July so stay tuned.
