Everything begins with an idea…
Whatever your interest or passion, we want you to get creative and submit your ideas for new innovations, products or services to Idea Factory – the Entrepreneurship Institute’s flagship idea generation competition.
Idea Factory is designed to nurture ideas that have the potential to grow into ventures. In joining the ‘factory’ process, you will be taken through our series of workshops to sustainably disrupt, thoroughly validate and pitch your idea with clarity and enthusiasm; supporting you to develop your idea from ‘light bulb’ moment to viable business proposition.
For the first time, this year’s competition will also include an award for ideas submitted by students from Engineering, Computer Science and the Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences courses.
Previous winners and finalists of Idea Factory include Sojo (an app for clothes alterations and repairs), KAYTEA (artisan tea, matcha and cold brew ice tea), Sistren (a community for Black women) and coolZEN (a smart wearable device for menopausal women suffering from hot flashes).
Sign-up to the Idea Factory mailing list to receive regular competition updates.
