What is Entrepreneurs Week?

Entrepreneurs Week is an initiative of Student Entrepreneurs in partnership with other organisations committed to promoting entrepreneurship and innovation on university campuses around Melbourne & New South Wales.

Who can attend Entrepreneurs Week events?

Events are open to everyone: all students, alumni, members of the greater university community, and the general public.
 
Students from any university in Victorian or NSW can enter in the Innovators Challenge, though anyone can attend the exciting launch and finals events of the Challenge, and are encouraged to do so!

Do I need to register or RSVP?

Seating for all events is first come, first served. However, we appreciate if you pre-register so that we know the numbers for catering.

What is the cost?

All events are free, and free refreshments are served at most events.

Where is Entrepreneurs Week taking place?

Most events are at the University of Melbourne, or around the Melbourne CBD. A couple of events are also being held at the University of New South Wales.

Do I have to attend all the events?
