Register Your Interest: Enterprise for Veterans Boot Camp (Melbourne)

October 22 @ 9:00 am - October 25 @ 4:00 pm

After months of consultation with the veteran community, and in partnership with DeakinCo, we’re pleased to launch our new flagship program in Melbourne this October.

Designed to be flexible and accessible, our re-imagined boot camp aims to inspire and enhance veterans’ entrepreneurial mindsets, skills and networks by focusing on key enterprise skills, including: problem solving; critical thinking; innovation; digital literacy; communication; self-management; and teamwork.

The boot camp is:

  • An experiential, learn by doing immersive

  • Participants work in small teams over three days to solve a growth opportunity for a real social enterprise, not for profit, or veteran-owned business

  • Framed by ten enterprise skills, the immersive blends design thinking, business model canvas and start-up methodology in a ‘just in time’ approach

  • Reflective learning, supporting participants to apply immersive methodology to their own business idea and reframe existing skills to business

We accept up to 25 participants per boot camp, and will work in small teams throughout the immersive. Veterans, transitioning defence members, and family members of current or former serving members are eligible to participate. Applicants must be able to attend all three days (please hold 22 – 25 October). A pre-work webinar will also be held the week of 14 October.

Please register your interest to attend the program. All expressions of interest are required to fill out an application form to be considered for the program.

Applicants will receive a letter of acceptance or apology by Monday 30 September. The full program will be released on  Monday, 7 October.

Applicants should apply for the program via the link here. Although applications are accepted on a rolling basis, we encourage you to apply by Monday, 16 September to be eligible to participate in the October boot camp.

Boot camps will also be held in Canberra in early 2020.
