InnovationACT (IACT), a proud initiative of The Australian National University, is a learning journey where teams participate in workshops, hear from experts and build connections within the startup community.
Each year, hundreds of aspiring entrepreneurs from across Canberra take part in IACT, with the top ideas sharing the $50,000 seed pool.
The program is open to students, staff and graduates of Canberra’s major tertiary institutions.Find Out More
