The NPL has teamed with The Ideas Place and Warrnambool City Council, with generous support from the Demo Dairy Foundation to encourage the young people of the Corangamite, Moyne and Warrnambool Shires to learn skills in business creation and develop their career aspirations. Any young person from the above shires who is aged 14 – 18 can enter this competition to create their own business plan, pitch it to industry members and compete for $1500 in prize money.

Entries can be from individuals or groups of no more than five. Business ideas created for the purpose of VCE Business Management classes (or similar) are acceptable. Likewise, if the young person has already taken the first steps of creating their own business, they can still enter that business. Assistance from teachers and parents is encouraged.

Over the first 5 weeks of the program, entrants will be provided with weekly resources to guide them to create a Pitch Deck that summarises their business. At the end of those five weeks, they will have completed their Pitch Deck and will submit it electronically. Please note, entrants will not personally present these presentations; they will be judged solely on their content.

A finalist from each secondary school will be selected. Finalists will be provided with a business mentor to help them further develop their business idea and assist with the further development of their Pitch Deck. Entrants who do not make finals will receive feedback on their business idea and Pitch Deck.

The finalists’ Pitch Decks will be presented at a Pitch Night where the winner will be selected. The overall winner will receive $1000 in prize money to assist them to turn their idea into a reality. $500 will be awarded to the careers department of the winner’s school (or the school they last attended if they are no longer a student).
