Global Entrepreneurship Week invites students, entrepreneurs, investors, social-changemakers, and key players from our local startup ecosystem to embrace diversity and collaborative learning to create a thriving future underpinned by entrepreneurial thinking and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This theme recognises the importance of equipping your people with entrepreneurial capabilities to thrive in the changing landscape of work, and to explore innovations and multi-disciplinary relationships that help build a thriving and more sustainable world.
We will be running a Startup Hackathon, fireside chat, pitch fest, and more. We’ll also have a number of independently run events by our incredible partners including YBF Ventures, The 11th Space, Melbourne SOUP, and more.
