Unlock your entrepreneurial potential and create sustainable impact

From our unique vantage point in RMIT, we make an impact through the students, founders and visionary industry leaders we work with.  Supported by the university's history of future-focused technology and enterprise, we work with people who are passionate about making the world a better place whether it's through the circular economy, community connection, mental health initiatives, cyber security, international aid or many, many other areas of focus.  

We run events, host workshops and facilitate programs that reach thousands of people and help them grow the skills they need to succeed as entrepreneurs, graduates or just as people who want to apply innovation methodologies to different aspects of their lives.
