We do lots of things, here's some of the antics we get up to
Student Business

The biannual Textbook Exchange has become a regular fixture in the Faculty of the Professions foyer at the beginning of each semester.


Entrepreneurs, founders and lovers of business seem to find their way to us. Sharing their experiences, they enjoy inspiring and motivating our members to shape the world in which we live.


We provide opportunities for members to be introduced to the cool spaces and people around our city.

Sell your textbooks through our Textbook Exchange! We are now open for registrations!

This is why do we do what we do
What we believe

Here at the AUEC, it’s our aim to provide a positive environment for entrepreneurial students. Whether you’re completing a Master of Applied Innovation, Bachelor of Engineering or are in first year economics, anyone willing to learn is welcome here.

It takes complementary abilities to build a successful venture including design, technical and business skills. We bring these students together and connect them with the Adelaide startup community to foster the creation of early-stage ventures.

We also act as a gateway to the wider entrepreneurial community in Adelaide and beyond: from Majoran to Hub Adelaide to Flinders University's New Venture Institute to Startup Weekend, we have a wide array of connections.
