Emerging Entrepreneurs launched in mid 2015 after parents expressed a desire for an Entrepreneurship Program to be developed for their kids. Concerned that in a world of hyper change, that their kids weren’t going to effectively learn the skills that they would need from school to be able to successfully thrive in the modern world.
As part of an initial trial we had 9 students from 5 schools + a homeschool student who participated in an extracurricular 10 session version of the program which was delivered face to face at theSPACE.
Emerging Entrepreneurs has since evolved into a comprehensive Learning Management System (LMS) - https://explore.emergingentrepreneurs.com.au which teachers are trained and empowered to deliver.
The course is a ten part course teaching the student key concepts about Entrepreneurship. It involves interactive questions, collabrative questions with others in the class & a quiz at the end of each part.
The site has a framwork to help students design their MVP, record their progress & help them to decide whether to pivot or perserve with their idea.
The site has a teacher admin section, allowing teachers oversee their student's progress, allowing you to guide in class material specific to student's responses.
An overview of the program can be found via the content and documents below:
Please note that we’ve set our system up in sessions. Each session typically represents one day, but there is flexibility within the program to move quicker or slower… We can move the modules around and add in additional content with relative ease.

PowerShot App was a youth based startup born from Emerging Entrepreneurs. Hamish Bairstow first pitched the idea for a soccer app that could measure the speed of a hit, kick or throw as part of the inaugural Emerging Entrepreneurs program and then again at a Startup Weekend, where he built a team and later went on to win a Queensland and Australian iAward.
