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 in the Michael Crouch Innovation Centre (MCIC).

Gregory Davis, Prototype Manager at the MCIC, says the
centre’s Makerspace is the perfect place for international
students to meet new people and collaborate on great ideas.

“All users are equal in this safe making community regardless
of their facility, degree, level of expertise or the scope of their
project. It is common to see someone developing a high-tech
robot alongside someone making artisan style jewellery,”
he explains.

“The UNSW Founders program
coached us through the whole
start-up process and it’s given us
a lot more direction and allowed
us to focus on goals and tasks.”
