Spark Festival - Young Start Ups Wanted for Fish Tank
Fri. 28 October 2016, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm AEDT
We're looking for young start ups to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs as well as show off their pitching skills.
As a young start up - if you're under 25 years old, we believe YOU have the ability to ignite the spark in the next generation of budding entrepreneurs. We would love you to be involved at Fish Tank:
‘Fish Tank’ will be held on Friday 28th October at the MAAS Powerhouse, Sydney.
* 10:00 - 10:30am - The Inspiration Station - Your chance to inspire the students and introduce your business and share your passion for entrepreneurship to ignite their spark of passion
* 12:00 - 12:30pm - Meet & Eat lunch session where students get chance to talk to you about your business & the whole world of entrepreneurship
* 12:30 - 2:00pm - Reverse Pitch session - You pitch your idea in 90 seconds to the students who then rate your idea & give you feedback.
As young entrepreneurs, you are used to pitching your business idea to investors, partners, and anyone you might share an elevator ride with. During 'Fish Tank' the tables will be turned. You will be pitching your start up business idea in just 90 seconds to up to 120 students aged 12 - 15, and they will be deciding whether you sink or swim!
The Fish Tank event will provide a special opportunity for budding entrepreneurs to sharpen their business ideas and learn how to pitch. By being involved in the this event you will be providing tomorrrow's entrepreneurs with a fun and interactive opportunity to see how the professionals do it.
