We welcome teams and individuals to join MEGA and be part of Australia’s digital future.
What’s in it for you?
If you are a mobile, digital content or ICT company wanting to develop new mobile products and services, develop your staff in innovation and commercialisation, meet highly skilled potential employees and pitch for investment then MEGA is for you.
If you are an individual with creative, IT or business skills and you would like to collaborate with like-minded people with complimentary skill sets to create new products, services, start up a company, pitch for investment, increase your skill levels for employment and meet potential employers then mega is for you.
What does it involve?
Industry presenters and mentors share their leading edge expertise to provide a hands-on workshop program to take teams through:
- Market research and analysis
- 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 RiAUS over 20 weeks (accompanied by a light working meal).
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 high profile Pitch Day with industry experts and investors.
