SPARK Deakin Entrepreneurship and Startup Ideation Internship

What is the SPARK Ideation Internship?

The SPARK Ideation Internship is an innovative and entrepreneurial Work Integrated Learning (WIL) program that will empower your entrepreneurial skill set and help transform your big idea to reality.

Develop entrepreneurial skills and mindsets, trial your ideas, collaborate with students from diverse backgrounds, and advance the potential impact of your work.

You’ll participate in nine workshops at Deakin Downtown in the Melbourne CBD and have the opportunity to directly apply workshop skills and learnings to your projects. Each week you will be set a series of challenges that you are required to execute to validate your idea in the market and round off to a pitch day at the end of the program.

Who can apply?

This program is available for credit to undergraduate and postgraduate students across all faculties who are eligible to use it as a WIL unit towards their degree.

It is your responsibility to ensure that taking a WIL unit contributes towards your course requirements, and will not prevent you from meeting your course rules. Please speak with a Student Adviser from your faculty if you are unsure.
