What you'll learn

About this course

An innovative entrepreneurial program seeking big-thinkers for a new type of learning: sounds like you? This Graduate Certificate in Collective Entrepreneurship from Torrens University Australia and Collective Hub is a one-of-a-kind opportunity.

Based on hands-on learning, collaborative practice and industry immersion, this exciting new program develops people with big ideas into bold, self-directed entrepreneurs - all within a year.

In this course, you'll study units that invite you to explore your own mentality - probing into your ideas of resilience and confidence, and giving you the tools to self-identify as an innovator. With trust in yourself and your idea, you'll then undertake a yearlong, self-directed entrepreneurial project, turning your biggest idea into a reality.

With coaching and mentoring support from industry leaders and Collective Hub's CEO Lisa Messenger at the helm, you'll fast-track your idea with expert advice and support. You'll thrive in a community of likeminded thinkers, and build the industry connections to sustain whatever next step you choose to take.

Dare to create something big and different - and make it a reality with this challenging new course.
