I'm a passionate advocate for student entrepreneurs, encouraging them to become world-class founders. I'm a big believer of entrepreneurship programs in Higher-Education and with this in mind I founded INCUBATE, the first student-focussed startup accelerator in Asia Pacific.

We’re backed by the University of Sydney Union and University of Sydney. So far we've graduated over 50 technology startups now worth over $30 million AUD. I also sit on the Industry Board of the Faculty of Engineering and IT at the University of Sydney, helping them connect with industry and entrepreneurs.

Niki's note: James is the definition of do - his sheer force of will brought student entrepreneurship to Australia. He didn't work his way up some career ladder or wait for government handouts, he just went and put together an accelerator and never looked back. Respect.
