Latrobe City Small Business Festival: Collaborating with Universities

Partnering with universities can give your startup or small business access to expertise and funding opportunities that wouldn’t be available to most small businesses. You will hear from business owners, and university staff about opportunities to collaborate with academics. Information will also be presented about students workplace opportunities.

Following this short presentation, enjoy a light super while you mingle with local entrepreneurs, small business owners, startup experts, as well as researchers and students who may be interested in collaborating.

Being a startup founder or small business owner can be challenging. There are a lot of ups and downs and often it can be a lonely journey. Startup Gippsland and Federation University, supported by Latrobe City Council are partnering to help bring together opportunities to develop academic partnerships in Latrobe City and Gippsland more broadly.

Come along on Thursday 14 September – you never know who you will meet and how they might inspire your startup journey or grow your business!
