Connect, collaborate and create at Launchpad
Murdoch’s gateway for business and industry to connect with creative minds.
Welcome to Launchpad
We believe the smallest thought or idea has the potential to make the biggest impact if it’s given the right conditions to grow and develop. Launchpad is the platform where free-thinkers can connect, collaborate and co-create to turn thoughts and ideas into real-world solutions.
If you have a new opportunity or challenge in your business that requires a fresh approach, we can work with you to provide a multi-disciplinary team of talented students and academics who can come up with creative solutions to challenge your thinking.
