The best way to learn the ropes of starting a business and know the ins and outs of creating and managing a successful one is to allow those who experienced such to share their own experience. Put their challenges and learnings into your startup toolkit and identify which of their best practices and strategies can be applied to your own business.

Be inspired by their stories and use their lessons to fuel your passion for establishing your own venture. Out of their own journey, chart out your own entrepreneurial map using theirs as your guide while determining your own direction and spot under the sun.

Feel the excitement of running your own venture and fill your lesson book with various tips and ideas from the experts. Catch them through this workshop and equip yourself well. Who knows, might someday join the ranks of powerhouse founders in business.


About the Speakers


Georgia Beattie

startupvictoria.com.au

Georgia began her career studying entrepreneurship at Babson College, Boston and RMIT, Melbourne. Shortly after finishing her University degrees, Georgia raised seed capital to found wine startup Lupé Wines in 2011. Lupé Wines specialised in supplying events, airlines and hotel minibars with the world’s first single serve glass of wine designed for ease of use. The company expanded quickly across Australia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China. Lupé was listed as top 10 startups to watch by BRW and Georgia was listed as Top 50 Entrepreneurs to watch in 2015. Georgia was a key note speaker on entrepreneurship at the 2015 G20 Summit in Turkey. In 2016 the company was successfully sold.

Georgia took on the CEO role at Startup Victoria in 2016 to help organise the startup ecosystem from her experience as an Australia entrepreneur. Startup Victoria is the go-to independent startup body for Victoria that focuses on creating more founders and better founders. The main initiatives the company runs are a monthly Pitch Night, Australias first startup platform which offers a central location for events, jobs, resources and mentors, and Victorias first startup ecosystem datamap.

Georgia also sits on the board of Second Bite, RMIT’s New Enterprise Investment Fund and is an Expert Advisory Member for the Australian Federal Government Accelerating Commercialisation Programme.


About The Masters Series


WeTeachMe is our vision of the future of learning: inspired and impassioned learning that is run by the people, for the people.

In 2016, WeTeachMe officially became the biggest school in Australia, one giant leap towards our fundamental goal to be the biggest school in the world. As we start on our new journey to attain our next ambition, we begin with empowering thought leaders in every corner of the world by equipping them with the right tools and knowledge that will help them spark new ideas and bringing these ideas to life.

In accordance with this purpose, we have formed a new creative program to assist us in spreading our message into the world. We launched Masters Series by WeTeachMe where we could begin sharing the gifts, knowledge, and experiences of those who have achieved the unimaginable in their life against all odds to entrepreneurs who are still in the starting line.

To achieve this aim, we invite the best and the brightest, the industry movers and shakers, the well-known and influential members of the world of entrepreneurs to share their learnings and experiences in an unwavering effort to help those who are in constant search to find the answers. From creating thriving companies to taking your business to greater heights, we have everything lined up for you where you will learn from the best of the best.

City of Melbourne

The development of Melbourne as a knowledge city has long been a priority. Today, the knowledge city concept remains a central component to the vision of the city. The City of Melbourne seeks to create a future in which the knowledge sector is better branded, understood, valued and experienced.

“The City of Melbourne continues to develop new ways to gather and share information to support those whose innovations and developments underpin the growth of the city. We broaden understanding and respect for Melbourne’s diverse knowledge sector and ensure learning can be a lifelong process.”


Inspire9

Inspire9 is the original community-led co-working space for Melbourne’s startups, freelancers, and creative entrepreneurs. It is a community in the truest sense. We share ideas, responsibilities and opportunities. We collaborate on projects, help our neighbours with a tricky technical problem and broker business deals over a game of pool or ping-pong. At the end of the week, we savour the satisfaction of work well done over a cheese plate and glass of something nice at our friendly Friday Night Drinks.


Dream Factory

The Dream Factory has created a space for extraordinary people to gather and innovate in design, technology and social change. It is owned and powered by Impact Investment Group and has become one of Melbourne’s premier workplaces and event locations. The building features an ample on-site and secure car parking, very accessible bike paths from Melbourne CBD and inner north, great end-of-trip facilities, and loads of breakout spaces, meeting rooms and communal areas. The rooftop is one of Melbourne’s best panoramas of the city and port and is accessible to all its tenants.


SPARK Deakin

SPARK empowers, educates and brings together Melbourne's most aspiring entrepreneurs. An initiative by Deakin University, our mission is simple: To invite everyone, Teach the curious, and Empower the best.

SPARK is more than just a moment in time, a source of funding, an event, or even a community. Spark is a startup ecosystem designed to help solve real problems and create a better future.


Startup Victoria

Startup Victoria is a not-for-profit organisation set up to create More Founders and Better Founders.

Startup Victoria is the go-to destination for all startup related topics. We believe that Melbourne can be one of the world’s best cities to build a startup. We want to help make that a reality by helping to accelerate the growth of Victoria’s startup ecosystem.


Wade Institute

Wade Institute is home to The University of Melbourne’s Master of Entrepreneurship. When you’re teaching people to create, make and innovate, the space they occupy should invite them to create new things from the moment they walk in. The Wade Institute centre will do just that.

Rather than walk into a building full of classrooms and offices, students will enter a space with a kit of parts, from walls and screens to different desk parts and lights. This main studio workshop is a white canvas with colourful parts ready to become whatever students and staff need it to be – from open plan classroom to office, customer lab or forum to pitch their business idea.
