InnovationACT (IACT) is a ten week learning journey where teams participate in workshops, hear from experts and build connections within the startup community. This year's program will kick off on 15th August.
The program is free and open to students, staff and graduates of Canberra’s major tertiary institutions (ANU, UC, CIT, UNSW, ACU, CSU, AIE).
Teams must consist of at least two people.
At least half your team must be made up of students.
Throughout the ten weeks, earn points by taking part in IACT events, using your team page to develop your venture concept, and sharing your venture and what you’re learning with the community.
The 20 teams with the highest points score will have their venture concepts assessed by the judging panel.
The 10 teams with the best venture concepts will be invited to pitch at Pitch Night, where they will pitch to a panel of influential judges and innovation community.
The top teams from Pitch Night will receive a share of the $50,000 seed pool and other startup support.
