Why donate to Ventures ilab Accelerator

The world needs problem-solvers, innovators, and doers to challenge the norms and create change. Innovation is vital for the future of Australia’s prosperity in every facet of society. It is about challenging current thinking and doing things differently. It is not just about creating new services and products, but also improving what we already have, nurturing communities and creating social impact.

The University of Queensland challenges students and alumni to not just become business owners, but to create jobs, generate prosperity, lead communities and be innovators in their fields.

The Ventures ilab Accelerator helps to make this a reality and to take early-stage ventures to the next level by delivering a program that brings these entrepreneurial minds together and equips them with the tools needed to set them up for success.

With your support, we can boost the entrepreneurial spirit of our students and help young founders participate in the program.
