In June 2017, when a friend suggested we apply for the Semester 2 intake of UQ Idea Hub, I had no idea where it would eventually take me.

I've always been interested in entrepreneurship and have talked extensively with friends over the last few years about starting a business. I didn't really have any idea what to do or how to do it but UQ Idea Hub helped with that.

After the program, and with new found inspiration, I applied for UQ Idea Hub's Tel Aviv Startup Adventure and was fortunate to be accepted alongside 13 other young entrepreneurs.
