Ever wanted to be an Entrepreneur?
At the Futurepreneur’s Launchpad, students got to experience what entrepreneurship is about from over thirty young, experienced entrepreneurs!
The speeches from these mentors were inspiring, thought provoking, and motivational. Our students were able to explore their preferred futures and were set alight with the contagious bug of entrepreneurship and design. They are now fully equipped with the knowledge to undertake a semester of Concept and Create (one of their Central Studies), where they will be able to make their own ideas come to reality.
Our mentors enjoyed the experience as well!
‘I always struggled with school, I failed to understand the real world application of the concepts we were taught. Today I was fortunate enough to mentor year 10 & 11 students on entrepreneurship and Startups. It was fantastic to see the kids learning real world skills like customer management, goal setting and pitching whilst grasping the concepts of business that will drive our future economy. Congratulations to Sasha Dragovelic and the team at The ASMS for arranging this fantastic initiative.’
