The Australian eChallenge Cybersecurity
The Cybersecurity eChallenge program, run in conjunction with TechInSA, will challenge students, professionals and the general community to work together to develop new products, processes and services in the fight against cybercrime.
Just as technology generates ever greater benefits, it also generates ever greater threats. Cybercrime is more lucrative than Google, Facebook and Amazon, costing businesses over $500 billion per year.
The Australian eChallenge Cybersecurity is run by the Entrepreneurship Commercialisation and Innovation Centre (ECIC) at The University of Adelaide and has stimulated entrepreneurship in Australia since 2001.
The Australian eChallenge provides a proven teaching and learning environment;
- that exposes participants to the world of commercialisation,
- entrepreneurial leadership,
- entrepreneurial strategy development,
- strategic business planning, and
- venture financing
The Australian eChallenge is based around the development and submission of a comprehensive strategic business case for the development of an early stage entrepreneurial venture. Participants pitch their opportunities to panels of potential investors from the local business community.
It is a program where entrepreneurial teams compete for prizes and the prestige of being nominated the most outstanding Australian eChallenge entrepreneurial venture for the year.
