The Launchpad logo


We believe that the smallest thought or idea has the potential to make the biggest impact if it is given the right conditions to grow and develop. The Launchpad is the platform for free-thinkers to connect, collaborate and co-create and turn those thoughts and ideas into real-world solutions.

If you have a challenge in your business, a stumbling block or a problem that requires a fresh approach, we can work with you to provide a multi-disciplinary team of talented students and academics that can come up with creative solutions that will change your thinking.
