GIRLSGOGLOBAL

Students will have the opportunity to learn about every stage of the product development and delivery life cycle through visits to leading businesses and discussions, workshops and interactive sessions with women entrepreneurs, disruptors and experts in their fields. Drawing on the expertise of entrepreneurs and executives of these world class businesses, Girls Go Global has been specifically designed to walk students through the key stages required for their product or business idea to be brought to life in the marketplace and become a success.

This program brings a business enterprise to life through exposure to organisations and people that will demonstrate cutting edge processes in areas such as product development, marketing, advertising, manufacturing and distribution. Meeting with venture capitalists allows the students the experience of presenting their products to real decision makers. Students will capitalise on their learning with Girls Invent by visiting businesses that have had to innovate quickly in response to challenges in the marketplace, including the opportunity of an interactive session with high level executives.
Intellectual property protection is covered by a guided tour and workshop and leadership skills are developed through a relevant program at DisneyLand™.

A visit to a large scale manufacturing site, followed by an innovative product design workshop where students can bring their ideas to life, a sustainability manufacturing interactive experience, meeting with women entrepreneurs with their own startups and a visit to a business that has successfully disrupted their industry all adds to the value of the Girls Go Global program/tour.

A major tour highlight is the two day Girls Go Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship Conference which includes speakers and workshops on such subjects as social media marketing, advertising, venture capital for women, design thinking for entrepreneurs, presentation skills and, across the healthcare industry, healthcare startups, marketing and apps development.

This program will assist students to continue to develop their own successful businesses by providing an insight into almost every facet of the business process and product life cycle and is an extraordinary opportunity not to be missed!
