creating australia’s

entrepreneurial spirit

For high schoolers, by high schoolers.

Generation Entrepreneur was founded in January 2014 by two high school students. After experiencing 5 years of high school education, they found that the education system does not effectively build changemakers, only individuals who will conform to the workplace of the past.

Generation Entrepreneur aims to change this situation by providing high school students with the opportunities and resources to start their own ventures. This provides invaluable skills to students and fuels an entrepreneurial spirit among youth which will drive positive change in our world.

Since our inception, we have…

  • Attracted over 500 members from schools across NSW, Melbourne and New Zealand
  • Collaborated with Australia’s top entrepreneurs and organisations
  • Been awarded 2nd place at Startup Weekend EDU Sydney
  • Been awarded ‘Best Social Venture’ by Social Ventures Australia

We firmly believe in providing students with a program that enables them to experience being founders of their own businesses and social ventures. Throughout this process, we aim to provide personalised support for each student, with the ultimate goal of inspiring and building a new generation of entrepreneurs.
