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.

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.
