At UNSW Founders, we offer 3 Pre-Accelerator programs for real startup businesses looking to fast-track their growth surrounded by other exciting ventures at similar stages of real-world progress:
These programs are all open to current UNSW students, researchers and recent alumni (up to 5 years out).
These Pre-Accelerator programs run concurrently, twice per year. The idea is that you “level up” intake to intake on your way to becoming investor-ready.
The face to face time commitment is around 4 hours per week for 5 weeks. Some independent work is expected each week. All cofounders are welcome to attend, but at least 1 cofounder must be able to attend every session.
