The Future of Work is changing

In ten years, 2.8 million young Australians will need to be significantly upskilled. The problem is key enterprise skills are missing from traditional education.

We’re here to change that. Our programs leverage the top five skills needed for the Future of Work.

  1. Creativity – connecting the dots with different information to present something ‘new’.

  2. Emotional intelligence – tuning into human emotions, and understanding changes in our behaviour.

  3. Complex problem solving – solving novel, multi-faceted problems in complex, real-world environments.

  4. Judgement and decision making – analysing and processing insights, to inform better strategic decisions.

  5. Cognitive flexibility – switching between thinking about multiple concepts simultaneously.

You will be transformed

When students join our programs they have limited knowledge in social impact and startups. They aren’t overnight successes. We train them.

You'll get to learn from the very best

Startup geeks, social entrepreneurs, and straightup legends who work and play at places like:

We’re big believers that every great achiever is inspired by a great mentor. These legends have been mentored by the best teacher in the world, life. They’ve built startups in Silicon Valley, supported 100’s of migrapreneurs to launch social business and have even turned their lives around, bouncing back from homelessness to later work at the UN.

Learn by doing.

Through our programs, we’ve supported hundreds of student entrepreneurs and startups to solve community issues in Australia, Canada, UK and the US.

From developing an app that gamifies sleep to enhance wellbeing, all the way to a SaaS product holding company, dedicated to launching real-world software applications.

Hannah Senior, FMN Alumni, Summer at Yale University | Founder @LAISO

“Participating in FMN in Year 10 was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. 

My experience there led me to study at Yale University for their Young Global Scholars’ Sustainable Development and Social Entrepreneurship Program, and later win Girls Invent. It helped me see that I could combine my love for helping others and my interest in entrepreneurship to make something that matters.”

Khoi Nguyen, FMN Alumni,  Intern at UCAT Secrets | Founder @Aurora

“FMN has been one of the most influential events in my life.

Immediately after FMN, I was able to land an internship at education startup, UCAT Secrets, that molded me into a better entrepreneur.

The experience allowed me to have the confidence to step out of my comfort zone and tackle a problem that I and many others are having, sleep and productivity.

It was amazing hands-on experience in starting from just an idea and launching it into reality. FMN is a must attend event for any student interested in entrepreneurship.”

Rose Khuarana, FMN Alumni, Ambassador at One Girl

“FutureHack was an amazing experience. I truly learnt so much from it and really appreciate all the hard work and time the FMN team put into creating this for us.

I loved the competition, ideas, resources and masterclasses. All of it was absolutely invaluable!”
