UQ Idea Hub

As UQ Idea Hub’s first Entrepreneur in Residence, Alborz Fallah will be involved in the program’s startup training sessions and will provide mentorship to budding entrepreneurs from all disciplines across the University, as well as to UQ staff and alumni in the program.

Mr Fallah spent just $35 starting his caradvice.com.au blog in 2006 while a student at UQ, then went on to sell a stake in his business to Nine Entertainment for $35 million. He has developed 17 startup businesses throughout his career and is looking forward to sharing his experience with UQ’s growing community of entrepreneurs.

“I am really thrilled and excited about the potential of helping up-and-coming entrepreneurs through UQ Idea Hub,” Mr Fallah said.

“With my start-up experience and advice, I hope to see a few of these students turn their ideas into multi-million dollar businesses.”

Mr Fallah will be teaching key skills and strategies, and providing resources and connections required to drive an idea towards being a successful business. He will also be available for regular one-on-one mentoring sessions at St Lucia.

If you are currently enrolled in the UQ Idea Hub six-week startup pre-incubator program, or you are an alumnus of the program, please contact ideahub@uq.edu.au to book a session with Mr Fallah.
