Startup Mixer

This event is postponed

We regret to inform you that our Startup Mixer has been cancelled until further notice. We have been overwhelmed with the interest and engagement in Employability Week events from both university staff, students and industry. However, the ongoing health and wellbeing of the UQ Community has and will continue to be our number one priority. We will endeavour to deliver these events at some point in the future and in the meantime, provide our continued support to enhance your employability.

Our Startup Mixer event includes a reverse pitch where our startups pitch their business to you! Startups range from media and entertainment to medtech.  

At the end of the event, you will be able to chat with startups that interest you to see how you could get involved as an intern or even as an employee!

Students from all disciplines are welcome to attend.
