Upstart Challenge Ballarat
The Upstart Challenge is an innovative entrepreneurship education program empowering students to become tomorrow’s changemakers.
Using design thinking methodologies and a range of enterprise-focused activities and experiences, students identify problems and create solutions to Positively Change Their World.
Your students develop future-facing skills and connect with local business mentors. The program culminates in our Upstart Challenge Showcase where student teams represent their school and share their solutions with the Upstart judging panel, local business, education and wider community, pitching live to win their share of tech and cash prizes.
Designed for busy teachers in a rapidly changing environment, this program has been recently updated to facilitate teacher-led flexible delivery.
Our easy to use online resources and support guide you every step of the way.

The Upstart Challenge Journey
“The more we can educate secondary school students to learn both business basics and entrepreneurial traits, the better off as a country we will be. The Upstart Challenge program manages to successfully weave in both. ”
