Venture Cup 2018 Webpage

Does your startup need funding? Would $20K help launch your startup? If this is you, Swinburne’s Venture Cup competition can help!

Open to current students, staff and alumni, up to 10 successful teams will pitch their business idea to a panel of judges at a pitch night on 14 November.

Ahead of the pitch night, participants will receive 1-on-1 coaching from the venture capitalists Rachel Yang (Investment Manager, Impact Investment Group) and Rohan Workman (CEO, Skalata Ventures) and successful startup founders.

Applications for the Venture Cup startup pitch competition kick off on 18 September with $20K of venture funding for the winner.

The Venture Cup is a great opportunity for you to gain the skills and experience you’ll need to drive your startup towards success.
