So you have an idea for something new or different, maybe an app or a product. Perhaps you’re looking for a project, working with other dynamic, like-minded people to create something unique. Or you might be a student, looking for an elective that allows you to use the skills you have but develop and apply them in an exciting new direction. 

Start right here. The Australian eChallenge is an entrepreneurship program where you create, develop, assess and action your ideas. It provides the tools, interaction opportunities and mentorship needed to begin your entrepreneurial story.

And not only can you actively pursue your own ideas and develop an entrepreneurial mindset, but you also have the potential to win cash and prizes, and ultimately launch your own business.
