Chief Student Entrepreneur, Jack Feng.

Jack Feng moved from New Zealand to pursue a medical degree at The University of Queensland and to maximise his capacity to improve people’s lives.

After completing a pre-medical degree in health sciences, Jack’s now juggling a degree that has a person’s wellbeing at its centre, accelerating an AI startup, MindMuse, with ilab that addresses mental health in the workforce and wanting to help 10,000 people by 2026 starting in his new role as Chief Student Entrepreneur. As a dedicated member of the UQ student entrepreneurship community, and one-time executive of the UQ Innovation and Entrepreneurship Society (UQIES) Jack was inspired by his UQIES peers and those around him.

“Growing up, my father had an entrepreneurial spirit and he became my exemplar founding several companies and showing me the way. I’m fascinated by how startups can be a tool to generate impacts and values.”
