Join a diverse community of globally-minded and innovative technological experts and founders on a mission to drive positive change through their business.


Now more than ever, startups need domain expertise to help them grow and make an impact. I2N staff help members connect with UON researchers, students and graduates to grow their business when resources are scarce.

"Early on in our startup journey, my co-founders and I realised that we were lacking marketing know-how. By reaching out to I2N staff they were able to put us in direct contact with University program conveners who identified enthusiastic students to help us through an internship program. When were in the position to hire for paid positions we had a pool of applicants who already understood our business."
