If you are interested in entrepreneurship and innovation, or have a business concept that you would like to develop, this is the program for you!
Think Big is Murdoch University’s entrepreneur competition. It is a structured program that runs across our campuses in Perth, Singapore and Dubai.
Participants take part in workshops learning how to apply Lean Canvas methodology to a business concept and will pitch their idea to a panel of business judges at the end of the program. If you don’t have an idea yet that’s fine, you just need to be willing to learn the process and develop an idea through the program.
You may enter as an individual or as a team. The maximum number being 3 students per team (larger teams may be accommodated if you are already working as a team on a concept and exceed this number. However, only 3 students per team will be permitted to present at the campus final and take up the opportunity of travelling to Perth for the Grand Final.
Each campus will host a campus final pitching event, and the top finalists from each campus will be selected to take part in the grand final at the Perth campus. Flights and accommodation will be provided for offshore finalists.
Think Big is a fantastic opportunity for budding entrepreneurs to explore and develop a concept with business experts, with the real possibility of taking the final product to market.
You’ll build invaluable skills in developing an idea, from identifying a problem to finding a solution and developing a product or service. You’ll learn business model, finance and pitching skills, all of which will be useful in any path of life.
Participants at our Perth campus will also be able to apply for our Real World Learning unit, which gives the potential to gain 3 credits on completion of the program.
Acceptance into Think Big is not a guarantee to be accepted into Real World Learning, participants must apply.
Grand Finalists will have an opportunity to take part in an industry experience. Additionally, there will be prizes of $1000, $750 and $500 for the top three places in the grand final, which could be used to help progress your business concept.
You will need to commit to attending a program of workshops spread over semester 1 and 2 as well as ongoing research and development in your own time with the support of a mentor.
