Budding young entrepreneurs in the Greater Gawler and Playford City Council areas will now have the chance to bring their ideas into realisation thanks to an upcoming pilot program.

The SA Government through the Department of Premier, Communities and Social Inclusion, Education and Child Development and State Development will fund the $120,000 project, after a successful grant by the Stretton Centre.

Only 12 to 15 students, aged 16-25, living or going to school school in the Greater Gawler and Playford City Council areas will be selected after a competitive process.

The program will develop young people with entrepreneurial flair, allowing them to transform their ideas into a productive business or social enterprise.
