Come celebrate Upstart’s Innovative Changemakers, crafting a better tomorrow through an interactive expo and showcase.
An exhibition and celebration of Upstart’s seven years of kickstarting young entrepreneurs, this event will highlight the themes that young people care about. It will showcase the designs and innovations that they have created through the Upstart Challenge and Upstart Creative Changemaker Programs. Community, industry and education stakeholders will come together to learn, connect and create a better future for all.
We give the young people of Geelong the ability to design their ideal future and ask them What’s Your Big Idea To Positively Change Your World. Doing it differently is inherently tied to our youth, the ones who are unencumbered by the shackles of adulthood. We give them the tools to dream to big, aim high and make connections to enhance our future.
The importance of maintaining, supporting and raising awareness of this designation is preparing Geelong’s Youth to inherit it. Raising their awareness and giving them a platform to share their ideas, concepts and designs directly aligns with the designation. This event encourages young peoples to get involved, make an impact and craft a future that’s tied to Geelong’s UNESCO City of Design designation.
