Y(E)P Cairns - Your Entrepreneurship Project

Are you full of bright ideas?

Join us at the 2019 Big Fish Weekend and learn how to turn your ideas into reality!

Bringing together 60 budding entrepreneurs from our region, aged 13 – 25, for three days of intensive and fun learning through doing. You’ll be guided through the creative entrepreneurship process.

You WILL start a new enterprise in three days!

On day one, bright ideas will be brainstormed, and you will form teams. Over the weekend, you will discover how to turn ideas into real business ventures.

Three days of fun and experimental workshops, inspiring mentors and good food, all culminating in a final Pitch event with special guest judges and some super cool prizes up for grabs.

All participants will walk away with new skills, industry and peer connections, future career insights and inspiration. No prior knowledge of start-ups or entrepreneurship needed, just a great attitude.

When: 3pm Friday, 12 April to 5pm Sunday 14 April 2019

Where: CQUniversity Cairns, Level 3, Corner Abbott and Shields Streets

Cost: No cost. All meals covered during the three-day event.

We are able to waive the event cost of $350 per participant, thanks to funding and support from sponsors Y(E)P Entrepreneurship Facilitators, Ignite FNQ, CQUniversity and Cairns Regional Council.

There’s a limit of 60 participants from ages 13 – 25, so you’ll need to complete a short application with a few questions around why you should be chosen to attend Big Fish Cairns 2019.
