Interchange: Finding your inner entrepreneur

Interchange is an action packed learning journey, designed to help you find your inner entrepreneur. 5 days, 5 universities and 200 students from all subject areas together you’ll explore what your ideas are capable of achieving!

Interchange, what will it give you?

As an Interchanger you might gain confidence in pitching your ideas, meet future business partners, enhance your employability or create a valuable network. 
In a nutshell, Interchange is designed for you. You’ll have control over the direction that you want to take. How your journey evolves is up to you. You’ll be the driver, so you will decide when to steer, turn or accelerate. But you won’t be alone, at each intersection your new friends and our experienced entrepreneurs and innovators will be there to support you, guide your learning and sharpen your ideas.  
One thing is certain, this program will offer you a lot more than 5 days in the workplace.

Interchange WILL take you through the innovation process, delve into design-thinking, sharpen your business acumen, improve your communication skills, teach you the art of storytelling, give you real life experience in solving real world problems, add value to your university studies,  unleash your creativity, ideas and passions, and help you to shape a career that matters.

Interchange WON’T be boring, easy or a waste of time. It is not all unicorns and rainbows, as an Interchanger you are expected to commit to all sessions, come with an open mind, work hard and be actively engaged with the Interchange tribe.

Interchange involves:
  • 16 hours of interactive hands-on workshops led by high energy facilitators; 
  • Short, sharp TED-styled content delivery; 
  • Action led learning environment with ongoing support and coaching; 
  • Expert advice and conversations with NSW based business leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs who will share their invaluable experience with you. 
PLUS, it will also be a lot of fun and you will be in the running to win some pretty sweet prizes at the final pitch up.  It’s all free, you just need to get yourself to the sessions and commit your time.  The State Government is subsidising all your course costs and supplying the food!

Whether you want to be a change-maker, launch a start-up, learn about leadership, gain confidence, give yourself an advantage in your future career, start a social enterprise or grow your network of friends – Interchange is for you!
