Practical learning for entrepreneurs
Technology and creative start-ups
The pilot program of business education workshops and mentorship, designed for entrepreneurs, is now completed and is being evaluated.
Entrepreneurs in technology and creative start-up business were able to take advantage of a mentoring program and workshops that were especially designed to provide practical and useful support from Sydney's business leaders.
The joint project, Practical Business Learning for Entrepreneurs was supported by the City of Sydney and was run by the UTS Business School and The Hub Sydney, a creative collaborative workspace on William Street, Darlinghurst.
The pilot program was particularly useful for entrepreneurs in start-ups where technology is central to the business – or if you work in design, fashion, entertainment, digital media, music, film and television, games, interactive content and software relevant to these sectors.
A series of workshops were developed covering 5 key skill areas to help entrepreneurs ensure their business grows and succeeds.
A mentorship program, which matched business owners with an experienced mentor, either a seasoned entrepreneur or a business consultant from PwC Australia, was also trialled.
