St Mary's College Challenge 2021
Illuminate: nextgen Challenge 2021
As active members of the Adelaide community, St Mary's College invited local business leaders to join a panel and engage with Year 10 students as part of the Illuminate: nextgen Challenge 2021.
Students demonstrated to the panel, solutions addressing the Adelaide City Council's recently adopted new strategic plan focusing on 'innovation, start-ups and entrepreneurialism by 2024'.
Students worked in teams to meet the challenges and demonstrated their business plan in a 'shark tank' set up for the panel to share advice and help shape their pitches.
St Mary's College would like to thank Charlene Ackland, President of Grote Business Precinct and Quest on Franklin hotel franchisee; Cr Franz Knoll, City of Adelaid; and Jennie Wilkinson, Committee for Adelaide, for participating on the panel.
