Australian eChallenge Italy Overview

What you need to know:

  • Entry Requirements

    The Australian eChallenge Italy is open to teams of two to six people to develop a business proposal for a new, previously unfunded concept. At least one team member must be a current tertiary student. More information about entry requirements can be found in the 'Eligibility' section of the terms and conditions.

  • Registration

    Entry into the Australian eChallenge Italy opens October 2017. Registrations cost EUR$1,500 per team.

  • Idea Proposal

    Teams must submit a idea proposal with the view to developing a concept proposal for a new, previously unfunded business concept.

    Idea proposals are judged primarily on the level of innovation displayed and the commercial potential of the overall business idea.

  • Workshops
    A series of workshops, presented by specialists in their various fields, are held throughout the program. The workshops guide teams through the process of developing a successful venture: from opportunity assessment through to marketing, finance, intellectual property, developing the business plan and pitching to potential investors.
  • Mentors

    Teams are paired with an experienced mentor from the business community, whose knowledge is invaluable in helping to construct a model that will prove to be a sustainable, growth-oriented entrepreneurial business.

  • Concept Proposal and Semifinals Pitch

    Teams must submit a concept proposal and pitch their concept to judges at the semifinal presentation.

    The oral presentation allowed us to truly have our ideas rigorously scrutinised. eChallenge is the perfect way to get your foot in the door of the big, competitive world that is business.
    Richard Arnold, Pyglet Enterprises.
  • Finals Pitch

    The final presentation consists of a second oral pitch. The judges are looking for innovative concepts that have an overall commercial viability based on the quality of the opportunity, the market, competitive advantage and the teams' strengths and weaknesses.

  • Awards Ceremony

    The Awards Ceremony is the premier event of the Australian eChallenge Italy. During the evening, finals teams will present their 60 second pitch to a captive audience of business, industry and community leaders. The winners are announced and the prizes are presented.
