We have the opportunity to unleash the entrepreneurial talent of our students and help them create tomorrow’s ventures.

The power of our collective giving can and is making a big difference to New Venture Institute, with each gift having an immediate impact.

Entrepreneurs are being touted as the saviour of the South Australian economy. Adelaide is fast becoming known as the startup state and education needs to have a bigger focus on teaching young people to lead, create, innovate and take risks. New Venture Institute (NVI) at Flinders is seeking to foster and promote this vital entrepreneurial culture.

We are fortunate to have access to knowledge and experience to help test ideas, find backers and develop business models which is what young entrepreneurs and budding businesses most urgently need – not just locally, but everywhere. Organisations like ours seek to provide this by offering programs that enlist the experience of seasoned business people as mentors and advisers to students and to businesses.

For NVI to continue to support and nurture entrepreneurial activity, encourage different ways of thinking, and contribute to existing businesses in creative and value-adding ways, we need your help to be sustainable.

Australians are voracious consumers of technology but there’s a fundamental difference between using tech and creating it. Wouldn’t it be amazing if the next Tesla Motors or Google was founded in Australia? We have a tremendous opportunity to unleash the entrepreneurial talent of our students and help them create tomorrow’s ventures. It all starts with teaching entrepreneurship to our students though.
