Startup Studio

Enrol now to study in July

A new UniSA elective


Are you interested in learning what it takes to launch a successful startup business? To be your own boss?

The Innovation & Collaboration Centre’s (ICC) new elective Startup Studio will equip you with the knowledge and expertise to design and develop a successful and innovative business concept from start to finish. 

Forget traditional university classroom settings, Startup Studio is a unique learning experience that immerses you in the world of startups at UniSA's ICC. 

At Startup Studio you will be connected with the Innovation & Collaboration Centre's community and people who have experienced firsthand what it takes to launch a successful business including expert advisors, Entrepreneurs in Residence, and a range of startup founders. 

Wondering how it all works?

Startup Studio is designed over three parts. Part one consists of a set of workshops as well as formal and informal mentoring sessions. Part two is a two-day weekend intensive experience where you will showcase your concept and pitch to a panel of judges. Part three will consolidate your learning and help you define a strategy that will help you move your business to the next step.

If you have an idea for a business concept or have been looking for an opportunity to contribute your skills towards a startup business, then Startup Studio is the perfect course for you.
