YellowBox
A student start-up
Business School students Vanessa Zhao, Ho
Jun Tang, Ben Delaney and Adrian Brossard
used their degrees – and assistance from the
UNSW Founders program – to help set up a
prize-winning tech company.
The students came together to co-found
YellowBox, a start-up which specialises
in short-term self-storage using bluetooth
technology. The innovative idea earned them
$5,000 as runners-up in the prestigious Peter
Farrell Cup in 2018.
“The courses at UNSW have deepened my
understanding of business and everyone at
the university was very welcoming right from
the beginning” says Vanessa.
The Founders program provided start-up
resources, ideation training and presentation
advice, as well as hot-desking office space
