Established 2012

The INCUBATE Program has developed from an idea pitched by two entrepreneurial students back in 2012 to The Sydney University Student Union, to be an award-winning program launching startups from The University of Sydney.

INCUBATE fosters a proactive community of entrepreneurs to meaningfully support student entrepreneurs to launch successful startup ventures.

The dedicated team have now helped hundreds of student entrepreneurs from all disciplines; supported the creation of over 135 startups and built a community of 100+ enthusiastic mentors.
