Meet our alumni


Start Something was launched in 2015 with an interdisciplinary group of researchers with a diverse range of projects. Here are some of their stories:

Dr Rebecca Braham, Senior Lecturer
School of Sport Science, Exercise and Health

Rebecca co-founded a health and well-being business committed to improving the fundamental movement skills (FMS) of children aged between five and 11.

"Start Something was a great opportunity to connect with like-minded academics and be mentored by seasoned entrepreneurs. Our team are now building a prototype for our first mobile app."

Ghulam Mubashar Hassan, PhD Candidate
School of Computer Science & Software Engineering

Ghulam developed a solution to measure strain in mining structures to improve safety in the resources industry and won the CSA Global Prize for Entrepreneurship.

"Conducting research with high impact is most important to me. Start Something gave me an opportunity to understand how my research has impact and what other dynamics need to be considered."
