Is your school interested in having the opportunity to deliver an innovative and ground-breaking entrepreneurial program?

startup.business is teaching students in rural and regional Australia to solve the problems facing agriculture using innovation and an entrepreneurial mindset. The complete program delivery package comes with a simple framework comprising six modules, a full 2-day Professional Learning training course, ongoing support, and all course materials for an in-curriculum program to be delivered over one or two terms in 2020 to Stage 5 Agriculture students (or approved Agriculture Extension Program).

As well as in-class course work, the program involves local business and industry through site visits and presentations, to give students valuable context for their learning and provide them with opportunities to see that entrepreneurship provides not only innovative thinking, but the ability to develop an idea and launch their own business.

The course culminates in a pitch competition when students pitch their innovative business idea to a panel of judges.

Winning students are invited to compete in a national pitch competition as part of the National Brilliant Business Kids Festival in Sydney, November 2020.

Applications are now open for secondary schools around Australia to deliver the exciting, hands-on Entrepreneurial Learning in Action education program part funded by AgriFutures Australia.

For more information, to find out if your school is eligible for one of the scholarships and to apply, contact Liz Jackson, Program and Education Director: liz@startup.business
