Uni is a time to discover your limits - and to exceed them! There have been some amazing recent uni student innovators, from James Roberts who created a baby incubator that’s the size of a briefcase and reduces rates of infant mortality in refugee camps, to the four students from North Carolina State University who invented a nail polish that detects drugs in drinks.

Think you’ve got what it takes to take an idea that came to you in a tutorial (or, let’s be real, an idea that came to you on the toilet), and transform the world?  Look no further!

Arc & UNSW Innovations have partnered to deliver a brand new suite of support for students and alumni alike to shape their start-up experience like never before.

With a dedicated team of staff who understand the student experience as well as having a range of experience with innovation and startups, Arc & UNSW Innovations have launched two flagship programs: the FounderLab and the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) Fund. 


Not as tech-savy as you need to be to create your project? No worries! We can find you a tech team to make your dream a reality, or at least a working prototype. Whether you want to create web applications, hardware business, or workflow systems, we can help you create a kick-ass production team to further continue or even produce your product.
