Valued at AUD10,000/person, fully sponsored by QUT Entrepreneurship

MIT fuse is a 2.5 week program for student teams or innovative individuals with an established business idea looking to work, think, and talk like an entrepreneur, and start the journey towards becoming a company. There are three (3) positions available for QUT student teams in this program. EOI applications are now open and will close on 4 December.

MIT fuse is:

  • for teams
  • customised to your needs
  • workshops NOT lectures
  • teaches skills useful today and valuable beyond startup life

MIT fuse will cover:

  • storytelling and pitching
  • primary market research (PMR)
  • digital marketing
  • prototyping without coding
  • UX and testing
  • learning how to work with your co-founders


Project work is self-paced. Appointments will be scheduled with MIT to accommodate (where possible) time-zone differences.

Participants will be supported by the QUT Entrepreneurship team, with dedicated drop-in times for virtual or in-person clinics in the Gardens Point or Kelvin Grove campus foundry spaces. You’ll have significant time devoted to mentorship from the MIT Entrepreneurs in Residence and learn from MIT founders who are also on a journey of discovery and development.


Apply here if you are:

  • a continuing QUT student founder or team with an existing venture
  • a continuing QUT student founder or team with any new venture idea
  • a budding entrepreneur who wants international perspective and connections
