The Unicorns Podcast connects you to some of the best and brightest founders, CEOs, executives, business owners, VCs and inspiring leaders who make things happen and inspire others.

Hosted by media and PR veteran and CEO of Mojo Media, Justin Kelly, we chat to leaders on the front line on how to get started, what it takes to build a successful business, how to overcome challenges, and advice for those on a similar journey.

In this instalment, Justin speaks with director of entrepreneurship at UNSW, David Burt. David leads the university’s highly regarded Founders 10x Accelerator program, which is now taking applicants for its 6th cohort.

Open to current and former university students and staff, the flagship accelerator program is tailored to work with high-potential tech enabled startups to make them ‘investment ready’. Since inception, 41 startups have participated in the program and over 300 mentors and industry experts have supported the program. Former participants have attracted the attention of the international investor ecosystem and have been propelled onto the international stage, following the completion of the accelerator program.

Tune in below to hear all about the program, how it works, how to apply, past success stories, and UNSW’s mission to become Australia’s leading university for entrepreneurship.
