The ‘Dare to Dream’ school series is aimed at young people years 5-12. Our aim is to introduce a fun and innovative educational model to connect young people with successful entrepreneurs, pass on important skills and prepare them for the world of work.


Our workshops are delivered to suit you, with 1 hour, a half day, or a full day workshops that can be run on-campus, or off site in one of our entrepreneur centres.

We have educated over 20,000 young people with our on-campus workshops!

Dare to Dream

  • Students hear from real entrepreneurs, how they navigated life after school, overcame obstacles and found their passion.
  • Students learn step by step how to start a business direct from those that have been there, done that.
  • ​Students split into teams to take part in ‘The Apprentice Challenge’ where they go head to head to solve a problem and launch their own mini business. The teams build a marketing campaign, film and edit a 30 sec TV commercial and then battle it out in a live ‘pitch off’ competition in front of the Project Gen Z judges.
