The Introduction to Enterpreneurship program provides a structured program for secondary school students to build critical entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial skills.
Using a range of tools and methodologies, students will work through the critical elements of start-up and lean methodology theories and will be supported to develop solutions and receive feedback from potential customers.
What distinguishes this program is its practical, flexible delivery model, which can be delivered either by the Tech School on site or within the partner school setting. Students will have a unique opportunity to work in small groups and learn from experienced entrepreneurs to develop problem solving and execution skills.
- Students work through five modules:
- Identifying a problem or market gap;
- Generating a value proposition statement;
- Building and testing prototypes;
- Developing a brand and audience; and
- Pitching to investors.
Graduates from this program will have the opportunity to apply to our Student Start-Up Academy – Victoria’s only student business incubator.
