Pop-up workshops

We work with UQ course coordinators to deliver tailored two-hour entrepreneurial workshops across all disciplines.

In 2022, Ventures delivered 76 Pop-up workshops across campus to over 3,500 participants including students, staff, alumni, and industry partners. 

Our workshops are structured around five key concepts and focus on practical problem-solving, using industry-relevant challenges. Ventures Pop-ups will help develop students’ entrepreneurial mindset, empowering them to be creative, adaptable, tolerant of ambiguity and risk, and able to learn from failure. The skills your students develop can help them be successful in whatever they choose to do.

Our workshops:

  • are delivered by the UQ Ventures team during lectures, tutorials or as an additional event
  • cover five different topics developed in partnership with the Business School
  • are co-designed in consultation with course coordinators
  • use industry-relevant challenges

3. Business model design workshop

How to make a business more sustainable – whether it be social, commercial, small or scalable.

We use the collaborative and interactive ‘business model canvas’ framework to quickly and easily define and communicate a business idea or concept. Our facilitator can focus on projects or ideas that your students are already working on as part of the course or provide industry-relevant examples. 

In this workshop your students will:

  • understand how business models are built, pivoted and scaled
  • learn how to apply the Business Model Canvas across a variety of frameworks and disciplines

This workshop promotes teamwork and is beneficial to students from every background and discipline. It is particularly relevant for project-based courses, where students are given a set of instructions and asked to deliver solutions.
