    Limestone Coast Youth Entrepreneurial Hub

    Mentoring the next generation of entrepreneurs on the Limestone Coast

    Youth Entrepreneurial Hub

    We’re excited to announce an increase in support from the Australian Government for secondary students in the Limestone Coast.

    Do you know a student who demonstrates an entrepreneurial mindset and could benefit from mentoring and guidance from our eNVIsion Limestone Coast Regional Manager, Callena Rawlings?

    We are currently inviting schools and parents to nominate their student to receive structured entrepreneurial mentorship from Callena. This mentoring can occur face to face or online via ICT Tools such as Microsoft Teams. Students will be supported by Callena to utilise tools from New Venture Institute’s flagship program Venture Dorm. Let’s get started!

    This initiative is supported by:
