The G*STEP program (global students entrepreneur program) is supported by Study Melbourne, International Student Welfare program. The idea involves combining start-up businesses with international students and gives international students access to real entrepreneurial experiences while giving start-ups access to global citizens.
The G*STEP 6-month program starting in August 2018 includes networking, mentorship, entrepreneur training and has been created to:
- Foster international students’ connectedness
- Innovative thinking
- Develop their entrepreneurship skills
- Foster leadership and communication abilities
- Building skills optimised for the future of employment
G*STEP is provided at no cost to all international students in Victorian universities and post-secondary colleges. It is open to Start-ups from any sector who will benefit from an improvement in global connectedness. International students are matched with a team that fits both their skills and interests. They will learn with a real start-up business with a number of other students from around the globe. They will be part of this team for the 6-month program.
