What’s Possible?

Previously known as Entrepreneurship Week (E-Week), What’s Possible? is our answer to the University’s NEXT strategy – celebrating what innovation can do to shape our future in this time of uncertainty.

Every year, we aim to raise a new and exciting theme to promote awareness and bring attention to pressing and trending issues waiting to be solved. By providing a platform, we hope to encourage innovation for impact, not only by our community, but also collaborating with the wider entrepreneurial ecosystem for insights, expertise and collaboration. 

What's Possible? RMIT Activator Entrepreneurship Month

What’s possible for 2021?

As the world surges into a digital future, how can we make sure no one gets left behind?

Across the week, the theme will provide a lens for each event and challenge. At RMIT, we recognise technology’s place in our future but also passionate about getting it right.

Let’s explore the theme and think about the different layers of society that seek to benefit from – or miss out on – innovative new products or services.

Check out what the week has to offer and secure your seat today.

Why What’s Possible?

In line with the RMIT’s NEXT Strategy, as well as understanding what’s next, this year’s theme invites us to ideate and innovate on what’s possible to apply intersectionality to our increasingly digital world. 

Here's why you should get involved:

Participants

Learn new capabilities, ideate for meaningful solutions in a multi-disciplinary team – from problem discovery and circular mindset, to design thinking and storytelling.

Innovation Ecosystem

Strengthening through a showcase of thought leadership and expertise for a cause that matters, connecting support networks for all stakeholders.

Industry

Position the challenges through unique insights and best practice to access next generation of entrepreneurial talent and brand building.

RMIT Outcomes

Themes

Entrepreneurship at RMIT University is a much-needed answer to close the gap between studying for your degree and getting the industry on-demand 21st century skill set.

Be proactive and resourceful. Entrepreneurship is for everyone, no matter what you’re studying. In collaboration with Careers & Employability, we’re bringing a wide range of seminars, info sessions, intimate talk shows and a hackathon on rural employment sponsored by Wantirna Community Bank.

Watch and relive some of the memorable moments where RMIT students uncover ways to make rural unemployment a thing of the past.  

Our current economic system isn’t working for people or the planet. The UN Sustainable Development Goals form the blueprint of change. This year, we aim for new solutions and more sustainable approaches to achieve a healthy, liveable and resilient Victoria.

We are excited to have prominent RMIT alumni, Jac Nasser, as a sponsor for this event, as well as collaborating with RMIT Sustainability and Social Innovation Hub.

Watch some of our favourite moments throughout the week and see if you can recognise anyone from the broader circular economy ecosystem!
