City of canning 2021

The YoungGems® program aims to bring entrepreneurship education to the larger community, especially those that don’t often have the chance to access these skills. Our vision is to unearth talent in Australia and Singapore to build exciting new businesses with global relevancy. Rather than start with the technology and innovation in mind, we have designed our program to be marketing-led – an approach that is key to business success because it helps young talent understand the ‘why’ of doing business and the problem(s) they are trying to solve. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for all and assist with solving real-world problems and developing solutions with global relevancy.

Program Overview

This program is an intensive version of our full YoungGems® diploma and covers a range of the modules to take you through the start-up process and start thinking about commercialisation. We welcome all skill and knowledge levels and cater to both individuals and teams. Over the 6 weeks, you’ll be taken through our series of masterclasses, be given mentoring sessions, experienced advice and support and have access to our large network of entrepreneurs and innovators from Australia to APAC.

This is part of the Canning Business Mentoring Program in 2021 and is delivered in partnership with Multicultural Futures and City of Canning.

ENTRY REQUIREMENT

All applicants must be over the age of 18 to participate. Applicants of all abilities and/or from diverse backgrounds are eligible to apply for the program.

There will be sponsored positions available as part of the partnership. There is no cost to you or your business but your commitment to the time involved is required.

Topics Covered

This is designed to take you through the entire start-up journey and expose you to the idea of real-world entrepreneurship. We start by exploring your identity as an entrepreneur and uncovering your own story, passion and purpose. From there, we show you how that drives a brand strategy and marketing plan that truly connects you to customers. We’ll also show you the nitty-gritty of setting up, including resourcing, financing, developing your team, choosing the right partners and setting up the right structure for you. Finally, we’ll get you pitch-ready for any situation with our own tried and tested pitching philosophy.
