What is 'The Big Idea'
The Big Idea is coordinated by The Big Issue, Australia's longest standing and most significant social enterprise. VU business students have the opportunity to set themselves apart from their peers by coming up with a concept for a social enterprise that could become the next Big Issue.
Only Applied Business Challenges students can participate, and all their work will count towards their final grade for that unit.
To support students through their business planning process, The Big Idea provides a series of learning resources, including online webinars with leading Australian thought leaders and social enterprise practitioners, as well as a series of suggested readings.
