The 'Melbourne Accelerator Program' is an exciting initiative of the Melbourne School of Engineering to support motivated students, staff, and alumni who seek to translate their ideas into scalable solutions that meet the needs of society. Full details of the program available here.
At the participant information night, we will be going through the program in detail: outlining eligibility, the selection process, what's on offer, and what's expected for those involved. There will be ample time for questions at the end, as well as information about some upcoming workshops designed to help you get started in entrepreneurship.
You must register to attend, doors open at 6pm for a 6:30pm start. Tea and biscuits will be provided.
Notes from the information night will be made available via the Melbourne Accelerator Program (MAP) website http://map.eng.unimelb.edu.au/
