Practical learning for entrepreneurs
Technology and creative start-ups
Entrepreneurs in technology and creative start-up business can take advantage of a mentoring program and workshops that have been especially designed to provide practical and useful support from Sydney's business leaders.
The joint project, Practical Business Learning for Entrepreneurs is supported by the City of Sydney and is being run by the UTS Business School and The Hub Sydney, a creative collaborative workspace on William Street, Darlinghurst.
The pilot program will be 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.
Places on this pilot program, which matches business owners with an experienced mentor, either a seasoned entrepreneur or a business consultant from PwC Australia are now filled.
Email email@example.com to get on the mailing list to receive details about future programs.
With 5 key skill areas entrepreneurs need to have in their toolkit to help their business grow and succeed, 5 distinct workshops have been developed to help you along.
The 2-hour workshops will be run by entrepreneurial experts from UTS and held at The Hub Sydney, which cover:
- Lean canvas model: What is a compelling value proposition?
- Your customer: Who will buy from you?
- You and your competitors: Why are you better?
- Money: What are the big issues?
- Team: Who do I need to have with me?
These are ticketed events that cost $20 per session. Each workshop is limited to 50 places so bookings are essential.
