Entrepreneurship is increasingly recognised as a legitimate and important career path today. Evidence suggests that your time at University is one of the best times to find team members and attempt entrepreneurship, with many modern high profile businesses being formed by university students working together. Entrepreneurship also offers you the freedom to pursue your interests, again at a time in your career recognised as one where you should experiment to find a path you like. The eChallenge is a course designed to offer you a chance to do these things. It is a course that offers students real world experience in becoming an entrepreneur. Students progress through the task of conceiving of an idea for a product, forming teams, collecting user feedback, describing their ideas to the public, and presenting their progress to a panel of expert investors and judges. Weekly modules codify the process of entrepreneurship, and assessment tasks are practically aligned to prepare students for the expectations of investors, as well as extend students’ networks by interacting with real world entrepreneurs. Added to this, the course offers a range of cash and in-kind prizes to help students start their ventures, with winners announced at a black-tie awards dinner for all participants. The course has been the first step into entrepreneurship for many that have gone on to great entrepreneurial endeavours, as well as an enriching personal learning experience for all.
