Through social media and the rise of influencers, side hustlers and coworking spaces, we are forever being inspired by stories of self-motivated people who go on to make millions and change the world. The rise of technology as an enabler in our lives and the movement towards ‘living your passion' has resulted in a new age of the entrepreneur.

But how does one become an entrepreneur?

If you find yourself inspired by stories of startup success and would like to see yourself in this picture, this is a must attend event.

Join us for an inspiring day of dreaming big and you could win a two week fully funded of tour of Silicon Valley, thanks to The Hacker Exchange.

It all starts with IDEATION!

We’ve partnered with AusIndustry, Moonshot Works and The Hacker Exchange to offer fledging Mildura and Mallee entrepreneurs a once in a life time opportunity.

At this highly-interactive Ideation Workshop you'll go through a process to extract the most outlandish, world-changing ideas from your subconscious and form them into concepts to test with customers at our Hackathon the following week. Learn how to create something innovative that stands out in the commercial landscape, using technology to deliver better outcomes.

Be warned! This is not your run-of-the-mill brainstorming session. Ideation is more visionary in nature. We'll help you conceptualise and find solutions for problems that may not yet be defined.

About our facilitator
Our facilitator is Alan Dee of Moonshot Works.  Alan is a highly experienced business executive with extensive experience across the startup and corporate environment.  He’s an innovator, an entrepreneur, a mentor and a leader in the start-up game with a Master Degree in Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

Take your idea all the way to Silicon Valley!

The Hacker Exchange will be whisking the winners of our Hackathon (25-26 August) over to Silicon Valley, for an immersive, two-week experience in the innovation capital of the world.

This Ideation Workshop is the perfect way to get a head start on the competition...

Do I need to have an idea?
You don’t have to have an idea, you don’t have to have a business, we just want you and your passion to join a group of like-minded Mallee folk to see where this might lead.
