Project description

This project will bring together Australian and Indonesian like-minded aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators, to provide the network and resources that can support the commercialisation of their ideas.

The program involves mentoring several Australian entrepreneurs for three months in Australia and sending them to Indonesia for five days on a tour to visit key innovation hubs, universities, start-ups and technology parks. Each participant will be assigned a mentor from the team of grantees who are experts in entrepreneurial internationalisation, international competitiveness and Indonesian culture. The goal of the project is to improve bilateral relations between young Australian entrepreneurs and Indonesian business leaders.
