Celebrating its 20-year anniversary the Peter Farrell Cup (PFC) is UNSW’s longest-running student-led and teams-based competitive ideas program designed to fast-track the next generation of entrepreneurs.  

This year, from a pool of 79 applications, 46 student teams were selected to participate in a series of experiential workshops to help build the skills and mindset necessary to test, integrate, pitch and potentially launch a real business. Each team was also matched with an industry mentor to enhance their personal growth and knowledge.  

After pitching their ideas in a first-round competition, 10 top teams have been chosen to compete for a share in $20,000 at Finals Night. This year’s finalists are incredibly inspiring and represent a great cross-section of faculties including Business, Engineering, Science, Medicine, with one team from UNSW Canberra. 

Generously supported by the Farrell Family Foundation.
