Sydney Genesis

Sydney Genesis is the University of Sydney’s longest running cross-faculty start-up program, housed within the Discipline of Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the Business School.

Part academic and part practitioner-led, Genesis is a place where students, alumni and staff can bring their business idea and develop it into a launchable venture. Since 2008, we have supported more than 1,000 University of Sydney entrepreneurs in bringing their business ideas to life.

Each semester, the top 25 startups from the applications pool gain access to our semester long program of specialist interactive workshops, pitching and networking opportunities and one on one mentoring with outstanding entrepreneurs and business leaders. Eight finalist teams present their ideas in a booth-pitching style showcase event, where appointed judges award the winning teams with over $20,000 in cash and in-kind prizes.

Business Practicum

The Business Practicum (BUSS6104) is an on campus practical business experience offering post graduate students an opportunity to work on a project with ASG Group, an award-winning IT business solutions provider, offering a complete digital transformation service for organisations looking to change. ASG Group is part of the Japanese management consultant Nomura Research Institute, listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

During the semester, participants will meet each week on campus in 2-hour workshops facilitated by the unit of Study coordinator with input from the sponsor. The project examines current activities, challenges and future aspirations. You and your colleagues will research the issues presented by the project and determine its scope and key deliverables in consultation with ASG Group. Through this process you will select which theoretical knowledge learned in class to use, where it is useful, and critically analyse data found during research to provide potential solutions and recommendations which will be presented as key outcomes via a written report at the end of the project.

Additionally, for the duration of the project, you will be able to reflect on how you have developed as an individual and as part of a team as a means of developing your own personal employment strategies while building professional networks.
