Your Journey to Transforming Ideas into Reality

More details to follow soon.

About the Innovation Ignition Programme 

Are you brimming with groundbreaking ideas but unsure how to bring them to fruition? Look no further. The newly created Innovation Ignition Programme steps you through the journey from concept to creation. Our comprehensive programme empowers aspiring changemakers and entrepreneurs like you to navigate the complexities of turning ideas into viable ventures. 

With a blend of expert guidance, tailored resources, and hands-on support, we’re here to equip you with the tools and knowledge needed to transform your vision into a reality. Whether you’re a seasoned innovator or taking your first steps into the world of entrepreneurship, our programme is designed to meet you where you are and propel you forward. 

Bringing an idea into the world takes time, therefore the programme is spread-out over a 2-month period, allowing you to gain the insights needed.

Programme Overview

The programme starts with a two-day entrepreneurial basics workshop session. From there, the programme is centred around moving from a starting idea to a more validated and intentional opportunity by ‘focusing on what problem you are solving, and for whom’, including having conversations with the potential users. Over a period of 10 weeks, supported by five evening workshops and with the guidance of a mentor, you’ll learn how to take steps on your journey to a start-up.  

The programme concludes with an opportunity to submit a robust and well-developed entry into the Velocity $100k Challenge 2024.
