RMIT Bright Sparks

RMIT recieved funding through LaunchVic's first funding round to deliver the Bright Sparks program.

Bright Sparks is a leadership program to inspire, connect and prepare the next generation of female entrepreneurs in Victoria through a network of local and international mentors and an intensive leadership program.

The Bright Sparks program teamed up female founders and entrepreneurs with a female mentor from the business or entrepreneurial space across Australia and the US. Over four months, the participants worked across Melbourne and San Francisco developing their leadership capability and entrepreneurial mind-set through interactive workshops.

The initial workshops in Melbourne explored intercultural communication, storytelling and ethical leadership, while the San Francisco leg of the program included insights into venture capital funding, business model canvassing and advice on being an ethical founder.

Funding for this program is now complete.
