Future Founders Roadshows 10-26 May

The Future Founders Roadshows are a series of free events across Victoria and online designed for international students and budding entrepreneurs who are curious about what it’s like to start your own business. Book your ticket.

Across the five events in May we have invited seven incredible guest speakers to join us and share their experience and tips as successful Founders, all of whom are previous international students or migrant entrepreneurs. 

The roadshows are just the beginning of the Future Founders Program,  Australia’s biggest entrepreneurship program, presented by Study Melbourne and StartSpace, exclusively for international students, enabled by a $500,000 investment from the Victorian Government as part of the Education Short-Term Recovery Plan.

The program will engage international students both in Victoria and offshore through Victoria’s innovative new Study Melbourne Hubs initiative.
