We are passionate about programs, places and spaces that provide engaged learning, real life project opportunities and entrepreneurial skills in young people.

Our own programs have grown in popularity and we are committed to building environments and culture where young people can develop their passions, pursue their ideas and develop the skills needed to face their future confident that they can and will make a difference.


Our current programs include:

For young people (10-17) with a passion for creating products and wanting to test the value of their products/inventions and create a real business. Three day taster program enables a full business life cycle experience and selling to real customers through a market day experience.
For young people wanting to take their products online to our edii Kids2Market online platform. One day workshop builds skills in photography, pitching, styling and proficiency using online tools. Also provided is mentoring on financial costings and intensive review of prototypes before going online.

Our intensive one-day workshop immerses students in design thinking – young change-makers learn the principles + processes of design thinking + empathy mapping, deeply collaborate with peers, design useable prototypes and test their ideas and prototypes in the real world.

12 month – online subscription to the edii Kids2Market online platform enables kids to experience selling products via our secure web platform straight to the general public. A great chance to build a hobby business throughout the year. Each year all our subscribers will have the chance to pitch for a retail contract from selected stores.
Design challenges bring together real-world stakeholders and Canberra students to tackle a problem/issue in our community.  A one-day workshop experience where students learn design thinking skills and deeply define a Canberra problem, collaborate, ideate and develop prototype solutions with peers.
