"There are some great partnerships at Deakin. I think if I keep an open mind, and don’t have what I want to do set in stone, I can draw on those opportunities in the future."

Maddie Boyd, Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science

"I've been really inspired by the technology and resources we have at Deakin University. The bike riding industry doesn’t have access to a lot of this technology, so we can really push the envelope."

Michael Williams, Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours)

"When we started an events company we saw the need to develop software to scale our business. Without the power of thinking young, things would have been next to impossible."

Shannan Gove, Bachelor of Commerce
