    Our partnership with Mount Gambier High School

    Our strategic partnership with Mount Gambier High School – one of South Australia’s five Entrepreneurial Specialist Schools – reflects our commitment to innovation in the classroom, infusing it into the curriculum, and inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs.

    Our new home at the school’s Collaborative Learning Centre (CLC) is an active, exciting hub for programs, events and learning opportunities for businesses and students alike – infusing key connections between these two communities. While our physical premises is eNVIsion Limestone Coast @ CLC, we are committed to extending our offerings across the entire Limestone Coast region.

    Youth Entrepreneurial Hub

    Owing to an increase in support from the Australian Government for secondary school students in the Limestone Coast, we are excited to announce the opening of the ‘Youth Entrepreneurial Hub’. The latter will offer secondary school students with an entrepreneurial mindset the invaluable opportunity to receive expert mentoring and guidance free of charge online or face-to-face.
