iHarvest Program

What is the iHarvest Program?

The iHarvest Program finished on the 30 September 2019.  Subscribe to iHarvest Coworking updates for information about upcoming events and workshops in the space.

The iHarvest program funded by LaunchVIC is a series of Meetups, Mentoring and Masterclasses delivered through iHarvest Coworking Sunshine.

If you’re a startup, entrepreneur or have an idea for building your business, the iHarvest program will have what you need.

Starting in October, get ready to pitch and network at #iHarvestMeetups, learn hot tips from professionals in our #iHarvestMasterclasses and receive tailored feedback for your business needs at #iHarvestMentoring sessions.

What do you get from the iHarvest Program?

Masterclasses

#iHarvestMasterclasses are facilitated by various speakers and partner organisations (including Melbourne Innovation Centre and VU Innovations) and are designed to drive entrepreneurial culture.

There’s a range of topics including lean start-up, business model design, customer centricity, pitching, IP, online marketing, innovation strategy and more!

The Masterclasses also provide you with a great opportunity to expand your network in the local entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Meetups

If you’re a startup, entrepreneur or have an idea for building your business, the monthly #iHarvestMeetups will give you the opportunity to validate an idea, solve a challenge, evaluate an opportunity or just find a new perspective.

The meetups are all about networking and building new relationships but you’ll also get to hear from guest entrepreneurs throughout the series, have the chance to join in Q&A sessions and pitch your current project.

Meetups are generally held on the first Tuesday of the month between 6pm and 7.30pm. Registration is required.

Mentoring

#iHarvestMentoring sessions offer specialised guidance to startups and entrepreneurs through connection to the VU Innovations – Entrepreneurs in Residence (VU EIRs), a diverse bunch with a single common defining characteristic – they believe in the importance of developing entrepreneurs and They Make it Matter.
