BRINGING SURF BIZ TO LIFE FOR SCHOOL KIDS
Tuesday, 16 May 2017

Surf Collective is all about promoting small indy surf brands, so getting right to the grassroots they’ve now started bringing business studies to life for school kids, running an initiative with Year 10 kids and encouraging a bit of entrepreneurship.

Says Surf Collective’s Mark Ranucci: “Someone will be getting funding to make a surf related product, should be interesting! We launched it with the kids last week and they are all pretty excited. We’ve put a panel together of five of our small local brands and we will be doing a shark tank thing to give them some advice etc and then a judging panel.”

SURF COLLECTIVE’S HIGH SCHOOL BUSINESS INITIATIVE
:

Australia has been a hotbed of creative inspiration and product innovation ever since modern surfing first hit our shores. Over time, many homegrown surfers, shapers, businesses, brands, designs, innovations and products have gone on to become successful surf industry players both here and the world over.

To continue that proud tradition and to nurture new emerging homegrown surf industry talent and innovation, Avalon’s Surf Collective have partnered with Barrenjoey High School to present our High School Business Studies Initiative  - a collaborative business/education program and competition that mentors, assists and encourages Year 10 Business Studies students to develop an actual surf-related product while learning - and experiencing - the ‘ins and outs’ of real world business practice and requirements.

As part of their prize package, the winning student entrepreneur of our High School Business Studies Initiative will receive: direct funding from Surf Collective to produce their winning product; an online shopfront on the Surf Collective website - a rich stable of proudly independent Australian small businesses and surf-related products - and retail selling space for their wares at The Sneaky Grind Café - Surf Collective’s collaborative bricks and mortar outlet.

Surf Collective is proud to instigate and support this High School Business Studies Initiative - a developmental and collaborative vocational platform and business program that brings student learning and experience out of the artificiality of the classroom and directly into the real world of commerce.
