Incubator is Monash SEED’s flagship program, which introduces students to the skills needed to create their own social enterprises.
Here at Monash SEED, we believe in the power of entrepreneurship to address the world’s great problems. Our vision is simple:
To create social impact and economic opportunity by enabling student-led social enterprise.
The 2018 Incubator Program will differ from previous years because it will target applicants who have already-formed social enterprise ideas, but also those who are passionate about creating positive social or environmental impact through business, but don’t have yet a fully-established idea. In this way, we hope to make the program more accessible, and open it up to a wider pool of talented, driven applicants.
