Deakin Startup Competition

Designed for Deakin students, staff, and alumni of all experience levels the Deakin Startup Competiton helps you launch your startup or social enterprise with a total prize pool of $25 000 including cash, in-kind credits from Google and Amazon and other perks. The Top Eight teams pitched at the Showcase event in October 2021 after 8 weeks of workshops, masterclasses and mentorship.

We are done for 2021!

"The amazing thing about the way that the course is structured is that we'll learn a little bit, but then we'll also get to writing, action, and implement what we learned to our business straight away. I didn't expect to have so much done!"
