Last week was a big week for the Australian Farm Albums business and for Caro, as she attended the Curtin Ignition program at the Centre for Entrepreneurship at Curtin Business School, at Curtin University in Perth. This was with thanks to a scholarship from the WA Department of Local Government and Communities, Women’s Interests.
The week was an intense training program full of speakers, presentations, discussions, and workshops where participants had access to mentors from the business and academic world, as well as graduating students from the MBA class at Curtin, to guide them in their business development journey.
From the Curtin Ignition website:
Do you have an idea or innovation that could become a high growth business?
Ignition is an annual event held in Perth. Run by the Curtin Centre for Entrepreneurship, it is based on the successful Ignite program managed and delivered by the University of Cambridge Judge Business School’s Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL).
Ignition is a five and a half day intensive program which prepares you for taking your idea to the business world. Ignition starts Sunday 31st August and culminates on Friday 5th September with a celebration dinner.
Ignition is comprised of a blend of practical teaching sessions, expert clinics, mentor sessions and experienced advice and support from leading entrepreneurs and innovators.
It will give you the tools, contacts and confidence to transform your idea into a successful business project.
The outcome of the week is that we now have a much clearer direction for the business, and in an exciting move we will be taking on new photographers to service more areas in the near future. So if your farm is in an area we haven’t been before, or if you are a rural photographer looking to expand your horizons, we might be working with you soon!!
