Delivered at Melbourne Connect, this free two and half day InnovatEd Bootcamp will allow you to learn the fundamental steps, from identifying problems or pain points at the University that are ready for innovation to developing, testing, and shaping your ideas into commercially viable solutions. You will have the opportunity to practice and refine your pitch, meet inspiring experts, mentors, and like-minded entrepreneurs-to-be in a supportive, fast-paced environment. The next Bootcamp is scheduled for 19-21 August 2021 at Melbourne Connect. Find registration details here
