The Program

The Young Entrepreneurs Hub is run over the school holidays with workshops available for students focused on specific topics to support them along their business journey. 

Hosted in the WeWork Co-Working Space at 310 Edward Street, Brisbane City, and facilitated by the BOP Industries team, these workshops consist of hands-on masterclasses, mentoring sessions, and dedicated work time for students to bring their ideas to life. 

During the school term, students are able to access support from the Young Entrepreneurs Hub team to track progress, ask for connections, and gain feedback on key business decisions. 

Students are not required to attend every session, but are encouraged to participate programs as frequently as possible.
