We're Up for Upstart

Our Community Bank is 100% on board again for the UpStart Challenge. We love this means the program is heavily subsided for secondary schools across the Ballarat region. The Upstart Challenge is a unique entrepreneurial challenge for teens, taking students on a journey from ideas to creation, working with industry mentors and pitching their ideas to win cash prizes. It’s a bit like Shark Tank for teens and it all start with the question “What’s your idea to positively change your world?” Mapped to the Australian Curriculum, the Upstart Challenge is an online teacher-led program with engaging and ready-made resources. Shortlisted student teams join the Upstart Accelerator and live pitch event. “Future-proofing our young people has always been at the heart of our mission at Upstart, and living through a global pandemic has highlighted further why entrepreneurial education is so important. We look forward to working with Ballarat’s teachers and young people to empower the next generation!” says Heather Kelly, Upstart’s Co-Founder & Director. Schools are encouraged to register for the upcoming information session to find out more, or register their class today, at #communitybankbuninyong #communitybanking #bendigobank #communityinvestment #lovebuninyong #upstartchallenge #upstartchallenge2021
