I'm a Deakin student - how can SPARK help me?

SPARK hosts regular events to help provide you with the knowledge and community connections to take your ideas to the next level. You are firstly welcome to attend events, apply for The Startup Weekend bootcamp and are eligible to apply for The Accelerator.

I'm a Deakin alumnus - how can SPARK help me?

We host events where you can learn from and contribute to the community, The Startup Weekend to get you started on your entrepreneurial journey, and The Accelerator to take your business to the next level. All of these are open to Deakin students, staff & alumni.

I’m not studying business, should I attend SPARK events?

Absolutely! If you are interested in solving problems and using business as a vehicle, our events will prove to be useful to you. We have different events on throughout the year and head to our YouTube channel to see testimonials from participants across faculties. Entrepreneurship is not limited to business or IT students.

I’m a cloud student and can’t physically attend events, what can SPARK offer me?

Depending on where you are on your business journey, we can connect you with a mentor via Skype. In terms of the Accelerator, you do need to be in Melbourne or Geelong as it is an intensive 6-month program. As of 2017, some of our events will be uploaded to our YouTube channel as well.

I'm interested in being a SPARK mentor - how do I do that?

Being a mentor means you voluntarily contribute your time to empower other aspiring entrepreneurs or help scale existing entrepreneurs' businesses. You can fill out the 'Contact Us' form, tell us a little more about yourself, why you’d like to mentor and your availability.
