Business Start-up Boot Camp

What solutions can be found to help solve the problem of affordable housing in Melbourne for young people? In September, Unit 3/4 Business Management students were challenged to develop solutions to this very real issue. As part of a full day Student Start-up Bootcamp run by the Melbourne Innovation Centre, students were taken through a program to develop entrepreneurial ideas. They then used the skills they developed to brainstorm different solutions to housing affordability for young adults. This program combined many of the concepts the students have been exploring in VCE Business Management, and allowed the students to apply these concepts in a real scenario. The group engaged keenly with the learning activities and shared their creativity and enthusiasm freely. The solutions found were diverse and exciting, and may be the start of something interesting. Thank you to David at Melbourne Innovation Centre for this terrific opportunity for our students.
