The Australian eChallenge, powered by The University of Adelaide, offers French students an opportunity to launch their entrepreneurial ventures globally using the Adelaide start-up springboard.
Since 2001, the Australian eChallenge has been stimulating new business prospects and encouraging young entrepreneurs to have a go at starting up their own business. The aim of the program is to assist students to develop new products and services that create innovative ways to engage in existing, emerging and new markets.
