Startup stars

Innovating the food system

UQ MBA graduate and Founder of Eclipse, Siobhan Coster has worked in partnership with CSIRO to create sustainable nutritional protein ingredients using precision fermentation.

The team have announced a $3 million investment round to commercialise a synthetic version of lactoferrin, an immune-boosting protein found in breast milk that is rarely included in baby formula as it takes 10,000 litres of cow's milk to produce just 1kg.

In 2022, Eclipse also won the Judge's Award at the University of Queensland's ilab Accelerator Pitch Night.



Optimising engineering 

Endla completed the 2021 Ventures ilab Accelerator program and received $10,000 funding to help take their venture to the next level! Created by Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/ Bachelor of Commerce grad, Riley O’Donnell, Endla is a software platform that improves the lifetime value of oil and gas wells.

In 2021 Endla also received backing from the world’s biggest startup accelerator, Y Combinator!
