RMIT has a bold vision to build entrepreneurial capacity in Australia.
The university has a long history of creating entrepreneurs. Now it aims to add vital seed funding to its unique suite of entrepreneur support programs.
The New Enterprise Investment Fund (NEIF) program, launched earlier this year, consists of three key pillars: funding, mentorship and access to an extensive support network.
Eddie McGuire AM, chair of the NEIF board, says: “The New Enterprise Investment Fund is inspired.
“We will provide young entrepreneurs with an opportunity to get their commercial ideas off the ground, instil in them the work ethic and dedication needed to grow a business, and offer them the support of seasoned businesspeople to bring about success.
“The result will be innovative and forward-thinking businesses that provide work opportunities for future generations.”
