Upstart Challenge

Upstart Challenge is a business idea generator involving school students in the Geelong region.

Each year, student teams from local secondary schools submit new business ideas. A selection of those teams with the most innovative and financially feasible ideas are chosen to receive mentoring to further develop their concepts. Finalists pitch to a panel of judges. The winning team is offered additional support and guidance to launch their business idea.

Since 2016, GlobalStream has supplied the annual prize awarded to the school which submits the most entries.  We’ve been honoured to present the following prizes:

  • 2016 – 3D printer presented to Northern Bay Secondary College
  • 2017 – 3D printer presented to Belmont High School
  • 2018 – Ricoh Theta 360 camera presented to Belmont High School.
