UNSW on mission to be Australia’s top university for entrepreneurship
“I’ve been to many of these pitch sessions, and tonight was just amazing,” declared Vice-Chancellor Attila Brungs, who served as a judge alongside UNSW Founders Entrepreneur-in-Residence Gary Zamel and Frances Atkins, Co-Founder and Director of Givvable (10x & New Wave).
“What you all do and the way you do it is quite inspirational. One of the things I’m so excited about is making UNSW the top university in Australia for entrepreneurship. This, in itself, is part of the journey. Each of you are going to go out tonight and, with your companies, make the world a better place. That’s what I’m so excited about,” said the Vice-Chancellor, before going on to thank every finalist for their efforts through the PFC.
