Monday morning, 9.00 am, while the quiet campus at The University of Queensland (UQ), St Lucia, shows that holidays are still on the agenda for students, ilab is beaming with the excitement of the staff and startups alike.
The founders of the 12 startups selected to take part in the new UQ ilab Germinate PLUS accelerator program are on site, bright and early, and ready to tackle 6 intense months of acceleration.
Beyond the words, the action.
From an initial introduction to a quick, hands-on, jump into collaboration and falling out of one’s comfort zone, the day is launched and quickly followed by the very first talk, out of many to come, from an external expert, Shaun Restorick-Barton, from Law Squared; Our Entrepreneur in Residence, Ran Heimann, later taking the lead to dispense smarts and expectations.
The stage is set and the intensity already high. This is acceleration and growth behaviour!
Welcome ilab Germinate PLUS cohort.
