UpRising

Nurturing the Grassroots
of
Innovation

 
Connecting our young designers to
business & industry

The Opportunity

In 2020, 3644 HSC students completed the Design & Technology course in NSW undertaking a Major Design Project (MDP) spending months researching and building ethical and sustainable solutions to local and global problems.

 

How many students can clearly see the pathways available to them?  All too often at the end of it all, these commercially viable, enterprising projects of high social impact, end up gathering dust in a cupboard.

 

Our talented and entrepreneurial students need your support by providing feedback and opportunities for mentoring to reach their full potential.

Imagine an innovative design student attracting support to take their MDP to market.  

2021 Awards Winners have the opportunity to receive funding to support their clever ideas, 12 months access to The Business Launchers course, mentoring support from Tank Stream Lab Founders and more.

The Opportunity


​Each year in NSW 4000+ HSC students complete the Design & Technology course undertaking a Major Design Project (MDP), spending months researching and building ethical and sustainable solutions to local and global problems.

 


How many of these students can clearly see the pathways that are available to them?  How easy was it for industry to get into the classroom and help?

 All too often at the end of it all, these commercially viable, enterprising projects of high social impact, end up gathering dust in a cupboard.

 


Our talented and entrepreneurial students need connections to

reach their full potential.

  

Help  grow NSW's innovation ecosystem by

connecting to the classrooms of tomorrow

and help shape the nations future,

today.
