HatchLab Sydney Social Innovation Hub Become a change maker

Startups and innovation

Universities have an essential role in fostering entrepreneurship and innovation in private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Entrepreneurship and innovation requires enthusiasm but it also requires targeted support.

To show its commitment to entrepreneurship and innovation, the Business School has introduced a program of startup and innovation support for students at the University of Sydney.

The program will provide early stage student ventures with the enabling knowledge resources, physical infrastructure and financial support to develop high-impact innovations and create high-growth enterprises.

Sydney Social Innovation Hub

The Sydney Social Innovation Hub was established in 2016 to provide a central facility for undergraduate and postgraduate students from all faculties across the University to co-create and innovate with other students, academics, alumni, community and industry.

Providing support for students to explore their interest in innovation and startups and have a practical startup experience is a key priority for the University. The Hub is committed to providing an approachable, collaborative and supportive environment for students’ startups to thrive.

The Business School has launched drop-in sessions to support students that have an interest in startups, innovation and entrepreneurship.

  • One-on-one, 30 minute appointments with a startup facilitator
