"If you're doing a start up yes there's a high chance of failure, but even if you fail there is no better way to experience the amount of stuff you’ve learnt on the way. And if you want to take those skills to the corporate world you can learn something that would have taken 10 years in just 6 months with a start-up."

Lisa Qi - Share with Oscar

How has UNSW Innovations helped you?

"I graduated from UNSW in 2012 and went into management consulting at Deloitte where I met my co-founder Louise Chen. Just prior to the launch of Share with Oscar we came to UNSW Innovations seeking legal and investment advice. Little did we know at the time how valuable the relationship would be and the opportunities it presented us. Joshua V Flannery, Mary Liu, Shahe Momdjian, and the team have been beyond supportive of Share with Oscar - they have provided coaching and guidance on pitching and growth strategies, connected us to numerous mentors, advisors, and investors, and provided opportunities such as Demo days, KCA, Sydney Angels and more. We feel extremely lucky to have the support of the UNSW Innovations team!"
