The Ideas Place Bootcamp

The Ideas Place Bootcamp

Wed 11 Sep 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Deakin University, Princess Highway Warrnambool

We launched The Ideas Place in February 2019 and over the course of the last six months have delivered a series of Events, Masterclasses and Workshops to help the Great South Coast community turn their great ideas into reality.

To round out this program, we are holding a Pitch Perfect Event where six lucky participants have a chance at winning some cash to help launch their idea.

First prize will receive $10,000 in cash.

The remaining five participants will receive $2,000 in cash plus a complimentary coaching/mentoring session.

In order to be eligible for the Pitch Perfect Event being held on Thursday September 19th, you must apply to attend a Bootcamp on Wednesday 11 September. Applications will be assessed against a set of criteria as follows:

  1. Engagement with The Ideas Place to date (10%)
  2. How you describe your passion (25%)
  3. Traction (15%)
  4. Completeness of your Business Model Canvas (30%)
  5. Your value proposition (20%)

15 applicants will be selected to attend the Bootcamp where we will work with you to validate your business model and your pitch deck.

At the conclusion of the Bootcamp, you will be required to do a 5- minute pitch to a panel of judges. We will then select 6 to go forward to the Final Pitch Perfect Event, where you will be required to deliver a 3-minute pitch.
The Ideas Place Bootcamp is a full day commitment with refreshments and lunch provided on the day.

Oh, and did we mention cash to help? Yep a cool $10,000 is on offer to one of our participants.

How do I get my hands on the cash?

We know, we get it, the cash would be very handy towards your great new business. To be eligible for the cash it is expected that you would have attended most of the Masterclasses and Workshops and have worked on your business model to get it to the point where you are ready to tell the world about it!

At the end of the program there will be a Bootcamp, this will be the next level in your business preparation. 

Once you are Bootcamp ready a Pitch Event will take place – think Shark Tank, (don’t worry, you will be ready!) where the winning pitch will win $10,000 to put towards their business.
