Project Gen Z presents: START UP SESSIONS

monthly entrepreneurial workshop series for 12-17yrs olds

Each month one of Australia’s leading entrepreneurs will inspire, educate and teach our students the skills and mindsets behind being an entrepreneur. Australian entrepreneurs will share ‘real’ stories and their most valuable experiences, before engaging students in FUN yet practical activities.

We concentrate on building skills in students that empower them to be the change they want to see, and be the leaders of the future. Equipping students with key life skills that they can take beyond school. Our students will build new skills under session topics while they ride the rollercoaster of business to prepare for the grand finale event in November – ‘The Dare to Dream Apprentice challenge’.

After months of prep we wrap up the year with a 3 day event like no other- the state final ‘Apprentice business challenge’. Over 3 days and with a budget of just $100, our students will work in teams to set up and launch a profitable business. Putting the skills they've learnt into practice. Each with a role- CEO, CFO, sales, marketing, product and creative, the students will face challenges, have to make swift decisions and learn to solve problems on their feet. This event wraps up with a showcase event for parents and peers where each team will ‘pitch’ the judges on why they should win the grand prize.
