Event details

Curtin University’s Centre for Entrepreneurship is looking for people with ideas and innovations that could become a high growth business and founders of early stage growth businesses to join Ignition, an intensive entrepreneurial education program that develops commercialisation skills.

Ignition is an intensive, one week entrepreneurial training program for aspiring entrepreneurs, academics and corporate innovators to trial and then prepare high growth business ideas for the commercial environment. The Program is aimed at founders of an early stage business and anyone with an idea for a new or improved product or service.
