Just Start It is a proven program for secondary school age students that takes engaged learning to a new level through exploration, discovery and creativity.

Just Start It is the first Australian program that truly engages students by utilising innovation. By bringing Silicon Valley methodology and industry mentors into the classroom, it helps teams of hipsters, hackers and hawkers create technology start ups.

Students work with a mentor for 1-2 hours every week over an 18 week period to develop a tech-based solution to a problem they identify.

Students learn to utilise a range of skills including:

  • Critical thinking

  • Marketing

  • Branding

  • Website development

  • Creative solutions

  • Team work

  • Monetisation

  • Pitching

  • Budgeting

  • Social media

After learning these skills, students then apply and test them (validation) with real customers, before pitching their ideas to investors.
