The flagship offering of the UNSW suite of Founder Programs is the Founder 10x Accelerator, which supports a select cohort of high impact startups. In its first round, the Accelerator has attracted a diverse range of promising student and alumni-led startups from across many faculties.

Once a week we invite a special guest speaker to mingle and share intimate stories and insights from their experiences with our startups and answer some of the burning questions our teams have related to the real challenges they are facing as entrepreneurs.

We would love to invite you as our valued community to join these sessions, and to participate in the Q&A with our special guests.
