Venture Cup – Swinburne Innovation Precinct

Venture Cup is an annual pitching competition led by Swinburne’s Innovation Precinct.

If you could use some funding to kick start your startup – this is the place to be! We’re giving $20,000 to a founder who delivers an outstanding pitch. Convince us your business idea is best-in-class by telling us about the market potential of your venture and how it addresses an unmet need for your target customers.

Your journey through Venture Cup starts by submitting a video entry of your pitch. This will help us decide who will participate as a finalist for the Venture Cup pitch night. Finalists will receive one-on-one coaching from the Innovation Precinct team, and successful founders.

To prepare you for the fierce competition, we have created a series of workshops to help you develop your winning pitch. Come along to our story telling workshop and info night/how to pitch workshop to find out how to share your startup story in a succinct and engaging way.

Venture Cup is a pitch competition open to early-stage ventures that are pre-investor funded. To be eligible for the program, a founder from your team must be a current Swinburne student, staff, or alumni.
