RMIT launches a new destination for start-ups

RMIT Activator

RMIT Activator is designed to help RMIT students and staff grow successful start-up ventures, by providing them with real world skills in enterprise creation, and give them a distinct advantage in the market.

For any participant who is ‘start-up minded’ and interested in anything from opening a pop up store, to establishing a social venture, commercialising research, or developing the next big tech idea, RMIT Activator can help.

Renzo Scacco, Director of RMIT Activator, is excited by the far-reaching potential of the initiative.

"RMIT has a rich history of attracting and developing entrepreneurial talent. RMIT Activator is the cornerstone of our enterprise and entrepreneurial strategy, and a logical step to harness the great ideas within our student body.”

The RMIT Activator team know that a great idea is often just the beginning. That’s why the initiative will provide access to specialist advice, coaching, resources, facilities and (when the time is right) the funding that is often needed to kick start a new venture.

RMIT Activator is available to currently enrolled RMIT students, staff and researchers based in Australia.
