"It's not about ideas. It's about making ideas happen." - SCOTT ELSKY, Founder of Behance

UNSW FounderLab is the world's first on campus product development team for start-up founders. 

Helping you turn your idea into a reality, FounderLab provides the necessary technical expertise and support for you to turn your idea into a product. Taking you through the steps of product development, from evaluating your initial concept to connecting you with the appropriate team, FounderLab enables you to create, your way.

The life cycle of a start-up involves many attempts and the necessary problem skills to build and adapt. FounderLab supports this process through offering the technical expertise at an early stage, reducing risk of failure and supporting the project as it continues to be shaped and grow. FounderLab also provides in house developers whose main role is to create a viable technical basis for your start-up.
