Entrepreneur’s Week 2010

Entrepreneurs Week 2010 Kicks Off With a Bang!

Entrepreneurs Week is upon us again and the excitement is building since word broke that the founder of Magnation, Sahil Merchant, would be cordially opening the event! Since the great success E-Week 2009, where over 1000 students attended, Student Entrepreneurs | Agents of Change have been turning a lot of heads with E-Week 2010 getting accolades from businesses, entrepreneurs and even the Federal Minister of Innovation and the University of Melbourne’s Provost.

Entrepreneurs’ Week 2010 will showcase a hit list of business moguls, successful entrepreneurs as well as up and coming entrepreneurs who will share their stories and secrets of success. E-Week 2010 will give students an opportunity to gain the right skills, meet the right people and build their confidence to just get out there and start to live their own dream!

The week kicks off at the Opening Ceremony where the Innovator’s Challenge will be launched. In this challenge, competitors will be given a regular, everyday object which they need to add value in some way.

Date: Friday 6 August
Time: 3.00pm to 5.00pm, followed by food & refreshments and networking opportunities.
Where: Elisabeth Murdoch Theatre A, Elisabeth Murdoch

At E-Week’s Closing Ceremony competitors will submit a short video of their ideas and efforts for a chance to win one of many great prizes worth over $4000!
