Australian students get a taste of the future through ‘student entrepreneurship’ conference
Updated March 02, 2018 07:18:34 The first edition of the Australian Students Entrepreneurial Conference, which will take place this Saturday, March 2, will be about “the future of student entrepreneurship” and what students are doing to get ahead.
The conference will be attended by more than 100 student entrepreneurs and business owners from across Australia.
The event will take over the Brisbane Convention Centre from 2:00pm.
It will also include a panel discussion.
The main speakers will be Mark Siewert from the Australian Institute of Technology, former CFA student Chris Taylor from the University of Sydney and former CFS student Rachel Siewart from the Institute of Business and Social Science at the University-East.
It is a four-day event.
“I think the most important thing to remember is that the conference is not a ‘get rich quick’ type of event, it is about the future of entrepreneurship,” said Professor Mark Siwert from Curtin University.
“The way that we look at it is that we are creating a space where students can share their ideas, their ideas about the world, their views, their goals and their aspirations for the future.”
Students entrepreneur Chris Taylor has made it his life’s work to develop new ideas and products for his students and other Australians.
He said the conference was an opportunity for students to learn about what students have been working on and how they are getting there.
“This is a chance for us to all share our ideas and our passion for this industry and share that in a really creative way,” he said.
I think it’s really exciting that we have a new conference where we can all come together and discuss what we all know is the future, what we can do to help each other and how to get there.” “
So what we’re going to do is we’re not going to focus on what students think is important, we’re just going to share what we’ve got to share and how we’ve been able to do it and that’s really going to help other students to understand their options and that there’s a place for them in the future.”

“The conference is being organised by the University, Queensland University of Technology and Curtin.
What we’re trying to do here is really try and engage students and young people who have been in the industry for a long time to talk about how to do things differently and how you can get there,” Professor Siwart said.
