Humanities startups

The Centre for 21st Century Humanities held Humanities Startup Workshops in 2018, 2017 and 2016 which were open to humanities students, graduates and researchers. During the workshops participants heard from industry experts and startup entrepreneurs, learnt the basics of coding and benefited from a facilitated brainstorming session. The participants then pitched their startup ideas to a panel of industry expert judges, with three startups awarded seed funding to help further their ideas.
