What does it involve?
Industry presenters and mentors share their leading edge expertise to provide a hands-on workshop program to take teams through:

- Idea generation and evaluation of ideas for products and services
- Testing the technical and business feasibility of those ideas
- Producing a business plan or business proposal
- Pitching to potential investors
The workshop program is held weekly on Tuesday evenings at Majoran Distillery over 12 weeks.
Each team is assigned an experienced business mentor and you will also be supported by a large MEGA support network of industry, education and government (see the partners page to see who is involved).
Communication, collaboration and teaching and learning are supported by the use of Web 2.0 technologies.
The project culminates with a Pitch Day attended and judged by industry experts and investors and the general public.
