Event description

Description

Join us for a special introductory series of workshops about UQ Venture's ilab Accelerator 2020 where you will learn all about the ilab Accelerator experience, its benefits, requirements, expectation and commitment. ilab provides one of the most comprehensive startup accelerator experiences in the country that will help you fast track your early-stage startup into an investor-ready, and these workshops will give you the opportunity to learn more about the details of the program and to ask any questions you may have and to really learn if this is the opportunity for you. You will hear from both ilab staff and previous ilab accelerator graduates.

Applications are due to open on the 30 September 2019 for our 6-month, $20,000 grant ilab Accelerator 2020 program. While attendance at these workshops is in no way mandatory, each of the events in this series is a great way to help you and your co-founders fully understand the opportunity prior to applying.


24 September 2019, Workshop I: Is ilab for me? (ilab Accelerator 101)

Introduction to ilab and the accelerator program. Do you have questions or wondering if you or your startup are eligible. Do you just want to learn more about ilab and the kind of support provided? Are you looking for details about the requirements, expectations, commitment, benefits, etc.? And maybe you are wanting to hear more about mentoring, seminars, pitch night as part of the program overview. This is a session to answer your questions.

02 October 2019, Workshop II: Teams and founders

Deep dive in what makes successful founders/teams. Team preparedness. Collaboration. Diversity. Do you want to gauge yourself or your team? Is your team eligible and complete for ilab? Are you wanting to ensure building a world-class team for your startup?

10 October 2019, Workshop III: Physical Product, hardware and makers

If you have a physical product as part of your startup business, this will be of interest. We will present the specifics of building hardware / physical products and prototyping. This will be followed by an introduction and visit of the UQ makerspace ("UQ Innovate").
