University of Adelaide’s Australian eChallenge program has invited secondary school students to take part in the entrepreneurs’ business plan competition this year.
Five secondary schools have already enrolled for the Australian eChallenge in Schools pilot program, which is run by the university’s Entrepreneurship, Commercialisation and Innovation Centre (ECIC).
Registrations for this year’s Australian eChallenge are coming in thick and fast towards the cutoff date of August 11.
As part of an ongoing series of lectures, ECIC Director Professor Noel Lindsay will speak about the nature and necessity of entrepreneurship this Thursday, July 31.
Professor Noel Lindsay started his first business at the age of 16. He is now the Academic Director of Singapore Operations and Director of ECIC, the University of Adelaide, where he is also a Professor of Entrepreneurship and Commercialisation.
This presentation will examine the traditional view of entrepreneurship and provide a framework for understanding its nature in terms of the opportunity, the entrepreneurial team, and the necessary resources required.
The presentation will also provide insights into how the entrepreneurial process can be adapted to socially and/or economically disadvantaged contexts where the emphasis is on improving the lives at the individual and/or community levels.
Professor Lindsay’s presentation will run from 5.30-6.30pm this Thursday at the Napier G03 room, North Terrace Campus, The University of Adelaide. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
