The Upstart Challenge experience enables students to identify and solve problems in whichever area their interests lie. Through the guided competition entry process students are challenged to evidence their thoughts and opinions, and importantly, to focus on the user or customer throughout the process of discovery and design.
Through optional highly engaging workshops and mentoring sessions, students learn more and connect with the local business community, gaining experience in sharing ideas and receiving feedback.
The Upstart Challenge encourages perseverance, resilience, an element of risk taking, and the optimism for students to just have a go!
Oh, and did we mention the prizes? Students entering the Upstart Challenge have the opportunity to win cash and tech prizes, and entry to the Upstart Accelerator Program to progress their ideas with the Upstart business mentoring team.
Will your school be the next Upstart Entrepreneurial School of the Year!
