About the New Venture Institute
The New Venture Institute is the entrepreneurial arm of Flinders University. Our mission is to reinvent the way the University creates impact. We do this by building the capacities of individuals, businesses, educators and researchers so that they thrive in a future disrupted by rapidly evolving technology.
The New Venture Institute has three core values: Boldness, innovation, and collaboration.
