1 June 2017

Have a cool start-up idea or already working on your start-up? Applications are now open for UTS alumni to apply for the UTS Hatchery+ program

The UTS Hatchery+ start-up accelerator is a 3 month program designed to take early-stage ventures to the next level.

The program is completely free and participants receive:

  • $2,000 seed funding for no equity
  • 24/7 co-working space for you and your team
  • Guidance from experienced mentors and domain experts
  • The opportunity to pitch to a room full of investors and corporate contacts, and
  • A chance to win a share in $10,000

Start-ups at any stage are welcome to apply as long as the founding team has a UTS student or alumni.

The Hatchery+ program prides itself on the diversity of the participants, and we strongly encourage female and international students and alumni to apply.

So whether you are a first year out of uni, a PhD candidate or an experienced alumni get your application in!

Previous Hatchery+ start-ups have gone on to raise hundreds of thousands, generate revenue and featured in the press.

Applications close on 14 July – apply now!
