UQ Idea Hub

During the program, you will attend workshops each week to work on your idea individually or in teams with guidance and assistance from a community of successful entrepreneurs.

Each workshop will focus on a different part of the entrepreneurial journey. These sessions are designed to help progress your project to a prototype stage ready for market testing and validation.

Program participants are expected to attend all workshops. 

Please note that topics and speakers are subject to change; however, we will make sure that every week we will have an exciting speaker and topic as part of your learning experience.

To be eligible to apply, you must be:

  • a current UQ student, staff member or young alumni (graduated in the last 10 years)
  • be passionate about entrepreneurship and innovation
  • have a great business idea, or be ready to use your knowledge or skills to work with another student entrepreneur
  • commit to attending all six weekly workshops
