Ignite the FIYA

Ignite the FIYA is a 12-week program for Australia's fearless and innovative youth between the ages of 14 and 22 to assist in bringing the incredible ideas of young people to life. The program is led by GNX Leaders CEO and award-winning sustainability expert, Caterina Sullivan, who shares her insights on finding an innovative idea, taking the idea from concept to product or service and then creating a viable business around that product or service.

A note from the founder:
Ignite the FIYA was sparked by a question I was asked one day by a young person during a workshop I was running. "How do you just start a business?" The question, to me, seemed bizarre because I started my first business when I was 7 years of age and since then, have started, and mentored and consulted people on starting many more. My record for setting up a business (from idea to fully-launched business) is two hours! After speaking to more and more young people, I started to realise that many young people think starting a business is this really monumental and involved task.
