TAFE NSW students Angeline Ong and Michael Denholm, are among the
first cohort of budding entrepreneurs to complete The Navigator unit
at Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE).
The Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE) is a partnership between
all 11 NSW universities and TAFE NSW. SSE brings together highly
motivated students from a range of backgrounds, disciplines and
locations across NSW to collaborate and innovate.
The pilot unit saw students from across the state take part in online
and face-to-face study, where students gained a deepened understanding
of the entrepreneurial mindset. Mapping the entrepreneurial ecosystem
through the Massive Ecosystem Scavenger Hunt (MESH) enabled students
to understand the Sydney start-up community through experiential
learning, an innovative approach used at SSE.
SSE CEO Nick Kaye said, “This first cohort has attracted students
from all 12 of our member higher education institutions and it’s been
inspirational to see such diverse and talented students from right
across the state.
“Our students represent a variety of disciplines including medicine,
botany, engineering, design, law and technology to name a few. With a
thirst to learn and support one another, they have been a true
reflection of SSE and our value in cross-disciplinary learning,” said Kaye.
When fully operational, at least 1,000 students each year will
participate in SSE courses and activities during their degree or TAFE
program, with many more taking part in a program of co-curricular
activities including workshops, hackathons, educational boot camps and
