About Sydney Genesis



Sydney Genesis is a start-up program for students from any background who are passionate about their ideas in business, technology or social entrepreneurship. We are dedicated to helping them bring their ideas to life through workshops, mentoring, networking, funding and prizes.

Each year, over 80 entries are received, with 10 teams selected to compete in the finals. Finalist teams compete for a range of cash prizes and in-kind support from top intellectual property and consulting firms to kick start their ideas.

This program has four major objectives:

  1. To challenge and empowers our students to build businesses that are profitable, smart and have heart.
  2. To bridge theoretical learning in the classroom with real-world applicability to meet the challenges of industry, the government and the broader community.
  3. To extend and enhance the University's entrepreneurship teaching through all faculties and at all levels from undergraduate students to executive education;
  4. To provide practical networking opportunities and bridge the gap between students and entrepreneurial communities, both locally and abroad.
Sydney Genesis attracts the most passionate, creative and enterprising students at the University of Sydney. Past Sydney Genesis teams have gone on to:
  • Secure a $50 million contract with the US Government. (Marathon Robotics)
  • Launch one of the most successful campaigns on Kickstarter, exceeding their target by more than 1000%. (Beehive)
  • Be selected by Blackberry as a strategic partner in the launch of their new product. (We Sit)
  • Launch a successful social business for women in Sierra Leone, creating employment for local women whilst addressing sanitary issues. (Launchpad)
  • Launch a seed bank for underprivileged schools in Zimbabwe, generating profits to support the education of the students. (Utunga)
  • Launch an innovative social enterprise bringing clean, affordable solar light to the bottom of the pyramid consumers. (Hessex)
