The Study Melbourne Future Founders Festival is a place for international students and aspiring founders to learn, gain confidence and have fun with their ideas.

Are you curious about what it takes to start a business? Already got an idea but not sure what to do next?

The festival is designed to offer you the following:

  • insight into the journeys of other international students, migrant and local founders
  • practical advice to apply to your own idea or founder journey
  • information on the startup ecosystem and support available for new founders
  • networking opportunities with students, founders and leaders across the startup ecosystem
