YINC is coming to Darwin!
Young Change Agents invites selected alumni to participate in Australia’s youth incubator for teenage social entrepreneurs – YINC!
Join like-minded, passionate youth who want to solve problems using sustainable business models. It’s your opportunity to revisit the idea you pitched in your Young Change Agents program and to take it to the next level!
YINC Darwin runs from November 28th – 29th 2018.
A minimum of two people from your team must be able to make the two day session.
The programs runs to school hours – 9am-2pm on day 1 and 9am-2pm on day 2.
What will happen at YINC?
YINC will be a mix of masterclasses, activities, networking and groupwork.
This will include:
– a cycle of prototyping and customer validation that will allow your team to iterate your solution in line with customer needs
– engagement with mentors to create confidence and a transfer of knowledge and skills
– exposure to industry experts, professionals and potential clients
– specific new learning topics including sales, partnerships, financing, marketing, legal, finance and risk
– regional pitch from 11am on day 2

Lunch will be provided on day 2 and the program will include a session on health and wellbeing in entrepreneurship.

About Young Change Agents
Young Change Agents is a social entrepreneurship program for 10-18 year olds that helps our youth see problems as opportunities.
It provides them with the tools to think creatively, build skills in critical thinking and communication and empowers them to believe that they are good enough to be entrepreneurs, leaders and world changers.
Best of all, it’s fun and exciting to learn how to create a social start-up. We use tools and techniques utilised in real start-up incubators and just like a lean start-up, there will be limited time to get stuff done!
