Sydney Genesis is the University of Sydney’s longest running cross-faculty start-up program, housed within the Discipline of Strategy, Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the Business School.
Part academic and part practitioner-led, Genesis is a place where students, alumni and staff can bring their business idea and develop it into a launchable venture. Since 2008, we have supported more than 1,000 University of Sydney entrepreneurs in bringing their business ideas to life.
Each semester, the top 25 startups from the applications pool gain access to our semester long program of specialist interactive workshops, pitching and networking opportunities and one on one mentoring with outstanding entrepreneurs and business leaders. Eight finalist teams present their ideas in a booth-pitching style showcase event, where appointed judges award the winning teams with over $20,000 in cash and in-kind prizes.
The WIL HUB’s Business Practicum (BUSS1321/BUSS6104) offers students an opportunity to interact with a company, SME, NFP or government organisation. Student ‘consultancies’ are created in class through which members work collaboratively ‘live’ on a project during the semester.
During the July 2020 Intensive the Business Practicum Project will be delivered differently and wholly online. The project is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students who will each work on solutions for their respective cohorts.
The project usually addresses a problem or issue arising within the organisation that requires analysis of the issues and development of a solution. The issue may be internal, requiring a narrower scope or a response to the changing commercial environment due to technology, environmental issues or other ‘wicked problems’.
Participants research the issues and determine its scope and key deliverables in consultation with the sponsor. This process enables students to apply theoretical knowledge learned in class along with critically analysing information and data accessed during research, to provide possible solutions to the problems and challenges identified.
At the end of the semester, students present their findings to the sponsor and provide a written summary (presentation document). Additionally, for the duration of the project, students are expected to reflect on how they have developed as an individual and as part of a team, as a means of developing a professional identity that highlights their distinctive self.

Please note, all WIL Hub units of study will be delivered fully online until further notice. This includes full online student participation for any work-place components of the course. Please consider this change to program delivery prior to enrolling and committing to the program.
