All about innovation

We aim to encourage students to be innovative and find their inner entrepreneur.

Have an innovative idea and want to develop it into a business? Great, we have the challenge for you.


We nurture and fuel ideas

Every business starts with an idea and in-turn, every idea needs nourishment to grow into a thriving business. 

While students are early on their idea journey, we have created an environment where ideas can turn into reality.

Our annual 'Start-Up Challenge' provides students with an opportunity to experience developing a business plan, with exposure to leading local and national business minds.


Create a passion for business

For those students who have a keen hunger for innovation, our annual Start-Up Challenge is the perfect environment to hone their idea into a commercially viable business plan.

In recent years some of those business ideas have gone to to enjoy thriving success in their field of focus.
