Generation Innovation Challenge

Generation Innovation has recently launched on the Sunshine Coast and unveiled the inaugural GI Challenge.

The GI Challenge is a challenge of youth entrepreneurship for local 15 to 25 year olds. Young people – some of whom are armed with ideas and others simply have a pep in their step – are now applying to be part of the competition which starts mid-march.

All participants will work in teams and receive training and mentoring on how to start their own business, with successful teams making a pitch before receiving seed capital to get their ventures off the ground.

If you or your business are interested in helping unleash the innovative genius of young people on the Sunshine coast, Generation Innovation is calling for donations as little as $50 each which will create the pool of capital from which seed-funding for the new ventures will be drawn.

Or, maybe you know a young person who might have what it takes.
