Given the number of logo’s featured above and on the program landing page, it might be hard to guess what the teams selected for the UNSW Startup China program have to expect, let alone what the winners among them will be given.

Here is a simplified version of how it all works below:


Teams will be spoilt in both the Sydney and China parts of the program – stay tuned for announcements of more special guests and the final 10 selected teams.

There is one more place left if you are a UNSW student, alumni or staff startup founder with your sights set on China.

To apply or to register just to attend the event, here is your chance!

PS. For those interested, here is a little more on the organisations and individuals supporting the program.

For all 10 participants in Sydney:

H2, muru-D, Springboard Enterprises Australia & Slingshot are working with us to identify high quality teams that fit the criteria for the program.

PwC via its Asia Practice is providing mentors for the workshop, as are our friends at Ausinan Science & Technology Society (ASTS).

Western Sydney based Chinese co-working space Next Genius and Asia Society Australia are media partners to the program.

Shenzhen Economic & Trade Office (SETO) is the main sponsor of the pitching evening whilst judges will also join from Guangzhou headquartered accelerator network Innohub, Beijing government run ZPark and Shenzehn based VC firm, Leaguer Capital.

Past participants of the program from both WattBlock and Tripalocal will join China-Israel innovation consultant, Sarah Tritsch as mentors during the program too.

For winning group in China:

Before flying out, pitch decks will be assessed and feedback provided by mentors from the Innohub accelerator network.

The China side of the program will see the winning teams meet with SETO, ZPark and ASTS representatives who will open up their networks of potential partners and investors for the group.

PwC China operations will also be involved as supporters during the China leg as will the UNSW International China office staff.
