What is Fastrack @ Monash?

Fastrack is a two-semester, globally recognised start-up program designed and delivered by highly experienced (and successful) entrepreneurs and innovators. The program is very popular and students are selected via competitive entry. Successful applicants will work with other high-performing students from across Monash’s 10 faculties in cross-disciplinary teams, to solve real-world challenges by taking their solution to market by the end of the program.

Teams are coached and taught by leading experts in innovation, entrepreneurship and technology from Silicon Valley and Melbourne and are supported by a network of industry partners ranging from organisations such as Next - Reece Group, Shadowboxer, Hypershift Systems, LUNA Start-up Studio, Amazon Web Services, LaunchVic, Xailient, ThinkHQ, Airwallex and more.

You don't need to be a business or entrepreneurship student to apply – Fastrack is looking for both undergraduate and postgraduate students who are passionate, driven and dedicated, and who are committed to taking on the serious challenge of building their own start-up.
