Founders Foundations Volunteer Program

MCIC Founders Foundations Volunteer Program

Founders Foundations, a program of UNSW Founders, exists to inspire entrepreneurial minds and embed future skill-sets in prototyping.

As a Founders Foundations Volunteer you will be part of a fun and supportive community and work as part of a small team on a nominated project. Projects range from creating mini-kits for users of the MCIC Makerspace, creating graphics and show-reel to promote Founders events and workshops, preparing for orientation to sustainability and robot making.


Founders Foundations Volunteers contribute to a variety of MCIC Foundations initiatives that are designed to supporting student, staff and alumni entrepreneurial skill building, innovation and making, and spark inspiration for ideas.
