The INNovation Crowd - Baw Baw Chapter

The INNovation Crowd Baw Baw Chapter is a collaboratively crafted program created in partnership with City of Casey and Cardinia Shire to provide real support to local entrepreneurs at all stages of their businesses’ development - from bright ideas to market-ready businesses set to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges.

The program includes:

  • Humble Hustle: Structured networking events designed to encourage collaboration between existing members and welcome new members to the start-up community.
  • Annual Innovation Summit: A showcase event that brings together a number of initiatives designed to energise the start-up community and showcase the excellent work they do.
  • Tailored Business Development Program: Includes a mentor support program to guide eligible start-ups along their journey and a start-up bootcamp for eligible start-ups with intensive mentoring and advice.

Members of the Innovation Crowd Baw Baw Chapter can also access workshops in the Casey Cardinia region as well. It's all about opening up the South East Region to collaborate and grow together!
