The Australian eChallenge
Run by the Entrepreneurship, Commercialisation and Innovation Centre (ECIC) at the University of Adelaide, the Australian eChallenge has stimulated Australian entrepreneurship since 2001.
The Australian eChallenge is a competition based learning experience that develops strategic business thinking for early-stage entrepreneurial ventures. Participants pitch their venture concepts to potential investors from the local business community.
Teams compete for prizes and the prestige of being nominated the most outstanding Australian eChallenge entrepreneurial venture of the year.
“Our success was made possible through the eChallenge and I would encourage anyone with a novel and practical business idea to enter this fantastic competition”
Brenton O'Brien, Microbric
