Event description

Description

SHACK is all about teams having a go at taking their ideas to solve problems, and building them into reality. Educators, students, mums, dads cousins and everyone in between; come along to Shack and learn how to innovate and build your entrepreneurial skills in a fun, friendly environment. You never know, you might have a million dollar idea by the end of the afternoon.

Facilitated by fourteen year old Verge winners and the team behind Verge Young Entrepreneurs, Shack will walk (or run!) particpants through a fun, engaging, full proof process of identifying a problem, getting to know existing solutions, and then coming up with a new, brilliant enterprise concept to pitch.

You and your brother might start taking your earing making empire to the world, or perhaps you and Dad will take that idea for solving that problem in the backyard, make a prototype and launch your ingenious business. Who ever is on your team, come together in a safe, fun and supportive homely enviroment to give innovation a go.

Whatever the scale, this is a workshop to take your ideas and make something with them.

This event is designed to be enjoyed together... colleagues, mums and dads, siblings, cousins, besties! Your ideas are welcome at our SHACK!

Following Shack, hang back at One Roof to see our Verge Entrepreneurs pitch against each other in an incredible 'Shark Tank' event.

The Verge Young Entrepreneurs program challenges Year 9 students to put themselves in the role of social entrepreneurs to come up with innovative social enterprise ideas which solve some of society's most pressing problems. In 2017, almost 400 students engaged in the program across a number of schools.

Come along to this incredibly special event to see five teams of fourteen year old social entreprenuers pitch their incredible enteprises to a panel of experts in the hope of taking home funding which will enable their idea to be taken from the classroom into reality.

This is what education is all about- transforming classroom learning into real world impact.

Don't walk, run to secure your spot at this event.

This event is supported by One Roof, Verge & Powerhouse HQ.
