Venture Cup invites you to join the Swinburne Innovation Precinct ecosystem as we support you to create new businesses, products and social enterprises.

Open to all current staff and students, the competition offers participants the opportunity to build teams, understand the customer and market fit for their idea and get valuable insight from experts.

Teams will have access to a range of workshops and online resources to help develop their ideas and build their entrepreneurial skills.

The competition culminates in finalists pitching to an expert panel for a chance to win a share of $10,000 in seed funding. Finalists will also have the opportunity to apply to participate in the next Swinburne Innovation Precinct Launch Camp and other exciting incubator opportunities.
