Ignite Your Own Business Idea

Up and coming individuals in the Western Downs are invited to this FREE, one-day masterclass and networking opportunity suited to develop business ideas and to transform them into a successful startup in the real world.  

About the day

In collaboration with Future Anything, this program aims to challenge and inspire young adults to take the first steps towards launching their venture. Through a series of problem-solving, prototyping and pitching exercises, participants will be guided by a panel of mentors to shape their ideas into viable business models. 

You don’t need to have a fully-formed idea — if you have an interest, or just a hobby, our team of experts can help take it to the next level.
