Sydney Genesis StartUp Program

Sydney Genesis is the University of Sydney cross-faculty start-up incubator program. Started in 2008, it has since supported more than 700 USYD students and alumni to start their business ideas. Each semester, more than 100 students enroll in the program, getting access to weekly workshops, one to one mentorship with outstanding entrepreneurs and business leaders, and pitching opportunities.

The seven finalist teams present their ideas before a judging panel that awards the winners with cash and in-kind prizes. In 2014, the Genesis Program expanded to South East Asia running the program simultaneously in three countries: Vietnam, Indonesia and Myanmar.

Applications: Applications for Semester 2 2016 open 4 July, with the program commencing mid-August.
