Launchpad is a unique platform for businesses and startups to engage, collaborate and co-create with our free-thinking students and academics, who can help turn thoughts and ideas into real-world solutions.

Innovating with business

Through industry events and think tanks, Launchpad brings together thought leaders from academia, business and the next generation to discuss big ideas and forge new networks.

If you have a unique opportunity or challenge in your business that requires a fresh approach, we can work with you to provide a multi-disciplinary team of talented students and academics who can come up with creative solutions to challenge your thinking.

Launchpad can help you get the edge on competitors by connecting our Murdoch graduates. We can also help organise student work integrated learning opportunities for your business.

Supporting startups

Launchpad is passionate about supporting startups. We host monthly startup mornings where you can hear from two local startups, connect with like-minded entrepreneurs and get feedback and validation on your own ideas.

Reconnect with the Murdoch community

As a Murdoch alumnus, we offer specialised facilities and spaces for your business meetings or workshop. You can also meet with our entrepreneur in residence Jeremy Chetty for a one-on-one business consultation or connect with our talented students to help solve business challenges you may be facing.

Do you have skills and experience to share with our future leaders? We welcome opportunities for you to reconnect and engage with current Murdoch students by sharing your journey and getting involved in our programs.
