Startup: A business start-up workshop is to be held at Warrnambool.

People living in south-west Victoria will soon have an opportunity to learn how to take their start-up entrepreneurial ideas and turn them into a reality.

The Latrobe Regional Accelerator and Deakin University’s SPARK program will present an entrepreneurial Startup Weekend on October 14-15 at Deakin’s Warrnambool campus.

International expert Adam Davies will facilitate the program. As the current program lead for the University of Oxford’s Entrepreneurship Program, he has plenty of practical knowledge of the startup ecosystem to share.

At the conclusion of the weekend, each team will pitch their idea and receive feedback.

The program is open to the barwon south-west region community and Deakin University Warrnambool students.

Applications are now open and close Friday, September 22 and numbers are strictly limited.
