Prince’s Trust Australia launch Enterprise for Veterans


Applications for 2019 programs now open

Prince’s Trust Australia (PTA) is excited to announce the relaunch and revitalized suite of programs developed for transitioning defence members and their families. Enterprise for Veterans will replace the Prince’s Lead Your Own Business program, which has been operating in partnership with RMIT University for the past four years and supported 86 defence members to pursue their small business dreams.

Enterprise for Veterans will continue to provide transitioning defence personnel, veterans, and defence families with the confidence, skills and support they need to explore and pursue a career in small business or entrepreneurship.

Under the new suite of programs, servicemen and women and their families will now have two streams to choose from depending on their business aspirations, knowledge or maturity.

One Day Workshops

For defence members interested in self-employment or seeking opportunities to explore a great business idea, Enterprise for Veterans now offers one-day discovery workshops. Held nationally from October 2018 and aligned with ADF Transition Seminars, the workshops are designed to introduce defence members, veterans and family members to innovative tools and frameworks they can apply to their business dreams.

One-day discovery days will kick off in Melbourne on 11th October 2018 and incur a $17 registration fee.

Boot Camps

PTA will also offer 3-day and 6-month business training boot camps for transitioning defence personnel and veterans. Guided by an Advisory Council chaired by His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret’d), Governor of New South Wales, both boot camps are designed to accelerate start-ups through online and face-to-face learning tools.

The 3-day boot camp will pilot in early 2019. The 6-month boot camp will also run in 2019 and incorporates national accreditation and tailored academic support to develop a work-ready business plan.

Applications for all programs are now open.
