FULL VIDEO: UNSW Founders 10x Accelerator Demo Night 2019 – 3rd cohort of start-up successes


At 6.30pm on April 10, 2019, the third cohort of the UNSW Founder 10x Accelerator program had its excellent demo and pitch night, with the top-notch pitches captured in full on video below.

UNSW is one of Australia's and the world's top universities, and has a number of incredible programs, of which the Founders programs are of particular note.

The Founders 10x Accelerator program is billed by UNSW as its "flagship industry-agnostic accelerator, tailored for high-potential startups who are founded by current UNSW students, staff or alumni".

We're told UNSW runs "two programs a year which consist of 10 weeks intensive programming and 6 months incubation", and that it accepts "up to 10 start-ups per cohort".

Well, tonight (April 10) was the Demo Night to pitch to investors and the startup ecosystem, and iTWire was there to capture the excellent pitches for some awesome startups.

The full video of the night's demo pitches is below, but for those wanting to enter the Founders 10x Accelerator program's fourth cohort later this year, here's what your startup will receive if accepted:

  • $20k in funding with a SAFE (Simple Agreement for Future Equity)
  • 10 weeks of accelerated learning from industry and startup experts
  • An additional 6 months incubation after the 10 week program
  • An immersive trip to Silicon Valley
  • Co-working space at UNSW
  • Access to our network of mentors, investors and Founders Program alumni
  • A slot at Demo Night to pitch to investors and the startup ecosystem

So, since January, the current third cohort of amazing start-ups has been busy, challenging their assumptions, learning from the best in the ecosystem and accelerating their business growth to be investor-ready.

At the demo night on April 10, those in attendance were first to hear from these extraordinary teams as they showcase their innovative ventures – and through the video immediately below, you're second to learn about these investment-worthy startups.

After the video is an alphabetical listing of the start-ups who presented, along with links to their websites.
