For researchers

If you’re a University researcher or staff member, we can help you achieve impact from your research or bold idea by developing it into a new product, service or startup company.

Our ecosystem supports you to commercialise your research, innovation or expertise so it can benefit society.

Do you have an idea for a social venture?

The University's Social Ventures Exchange (SVx) connects researchers interested in creating impact via a social enterprise or social purpose venture – in other words – a 'business for good'.

Learn how University of Melbourne researchers with ideas for social purpose startups can connect with resources, expertise and support at all stages of the impact journey.
