A boot camp version of our award-winning Diploma in Entrepreneurship

Gemstar’s YoungGems® SPARK is an intensive version of our established diploma program aimed at aspiring young entrepreneurs and students under the age of 35. If you’ve got an amazing idea or have always wanted to kick off your business, turn to the YoungGems® SPARK intensive to get it ready for the commercial environment. With 3 days packed full of carefully selected masterclasses, delivered by a community of experts and the trained facilitation team at Gemstar, the program is suited for all levels of knowledge.

Program overview

YoungGems® SPARK is an inclusive and accessible program, aimed at bringing entrepreneurship skills to a wider range of the community and enabling the next generation to drive innovation in boosting our economy. The program is designed to be an intensive version of our full YoungGems® diploma and covers a range of the modules in the larger program 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 3 days, you’ll be taken through our series of intensive masterclasses by the Managing Director, Gemma Manning, and the Gemstar facilitation team. You’ll be given mentoring sessions, experienced advice and support and have access to our large network of entrepreneurs and innovators from Australia to APAC.

YoungGems® SPARK 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.
