Victorian students can access first-of-its-kind business incubator

by | Aug 14, 2020 | News | 0 comments

Last week, we launched our new enrichment series program for enterprise learning. We are thrilled to introduce its new program manager, Tess McLaren! As many of you might already know, Tess is our most experienced STEM Communication Officer at the Melbourne Polytechnic Tech School. She will be taking on the role of program manager for this new exciting specialised program supporting secondary school students in years 8-12 across Victoria.

Students are presented with societal or market challenges with enterprise opportunities and need to develop rapid prototyping business model solutions. 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 real, potential customers.

Graduates from this program will have opportunity to apply to our Student Start-Up Academy – Victoria’s only student Business Incubator, an intensive accelerator program with access to highly credentialed mentors, pitch training and seed funding, to start building and executing their business model.
