SEED - Young Entrepreneurs Program

Are you a young person with a business idea that you need help getting off the ground?

We are after foodies, artists, tech pros, online gurus, beauty gurus, designers, social enterprise ideas… anyone aged 15-25* with a business idea they want to pursue!

"Plant the seed and watch your idea grow"

The City of Kalamunda are excited to launch this new program in 2021, in partnership with the Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce and Hawaiian’s Forrestfield.

What is SEED?

The SEED Young Entrepreneurs program will guide you through the process of what it takes to start a business, through skill-building workshops, networking with successful young entrepreneurs, business mentors and creating your own business plan. This FREE program will offer you vital knowledge, guidance, and support in helping you develop your seed idea into a flourishing business. 

How does the program work?

Each element of the program flows into the next, from the launches, to workshops, all building up to the final business plan presentation to go in the running to win a share in $3000 worth of seed funding prizes. While we recommend attending each of the events to get the most out the program, you are welcome to attend a single event if that topic is your sole interest. No matter how many or few you attend, everyone is welcome to submit a business plan for judging. After a review of submitted digital business plans, finalists will be invited to pitch their concept to a panel of judges who will award prizes which are outlined in the next section. You are only eligible for your business idea to be considered for prizes if you submit a plan.

After review of their business plans, the finalists will be invited to showcase their business and products at a stall space as part of the SEED Young Entrepreneurs Youth Hub at the Kalamunda Chamber of Commerce Night Markets in October 2021! This will be a few months after finalists are awarded to ensure you have time to develop or make your product.
