Description

Get a real idea of what it takes to bring a business or an idea to life

This Young Entrepreneur Boot Camp is essential for anyone aged between 16-24 years of age who wants to discover what it takes to reach your entrepreneurial potential. You will be given a set of invaluable tools which will enable you to capitalise on that potential and help launch your career or new business venture.

The program consists of a 2-day workshop giving you entrepreneurial experience using the activities and business simulation as a platform towards discovering your own personal qualities, characteristics and attitudes as an entrepreneur.

What we will cover:

  • We'll delve into the key components when starting a new idea
  • Define the problem that you’re solving and for whom
  • Define your target audience and what they will be looking for
  • Define the value that your idea has for your target audience (and it isn’t just financial)
  • What would you need to progress to the next stage

Bringing it all together to create a great pitch

This program will run over the course of 2 days during Youth Week 2019 (16th & 17th April) and will be followed by the Youth Innovation Networking Event in the evening where participants will be invited along with the region's business leaders and influencers to make their pitch their pitch and get feedback. All participants with a business idea will have the opportunity to access ongoing business mentoring.

Further Information:

  • Lunch will be provided on both days, you will need to bring your own morning tea if required
