Momentum is a national programme which operates along side Return On Science, and is a member of the Commercialisation Partner Network.
Momentum is formed of student-led Investment Committees with a focus on start -up ventures, particularly those originating from student intellectual property. The Momentum Investment Committees are regionally based and support projects from multiple tertiary institutes, and the private sector.
The Investment Committees are formed of an independent Chair, tertiary students, and some longitudinally experienced investors, and entrepreneurs. Each Momentum Investment Committee has a majority of student members. Investment Committee members are highly diverse from their backgrounds, to their chosen academic field, to the perspectives that they bring to the project teams. This allows the committees to provide advice and support to a wide range of start up technologies.
