Startup Academy's point-of-difference is that either you can come with your own idea or we have a bank of ideas from UQ researchers that may have disruptive startup potential. Finding a customer with a problem you can solve better than anyone else is the most fundamental component of entrepreneurship and innovation. However, unless the entrepreneur has BOTH a product or service innovation AND an innovative business model, the entrepreneur may be unable to create, extract and protect new unlocked value. This is because innovation is required to be investible, scalable and sustainable, providing a barrier to bigger and faster competitors. The Startup Academy will help you develop a validated Value Proposition and Business Model.
