Entries close September 8th 11:59pm... We'll let you know of the outcome of September 15th!

We can only select a handful of entries, which is terrible because we'd love to accept all applications! Entrepreneurship is all about overcoming hurdles, so don't let an unsuccessful application discourage you from travelling down the start-up journey 🙂 

If you are unsuccessful, there are three ways you can get involved...

  1. Keep on the lookout for an email from us... We'll be hosting more events like this in future!
  2. Invite Mandy to come visit your school... We run #moneysmart workshops which are lots of fun. We can even run a custom Movers & Makers day at your school! Send us an email - hello@mandymoney.com.au 
  3. We'll be enlisting lots of young entrepreneurs to help us design and test one of our upcoming products... We'll be in touch about joining this team regardless of the outcome of your application!



The event will be generously hosted at our sponsor venue -  Haileybury City Campus (383 King St, West Melbourne VIC 3003) from 9am-5pm.

Any details beyond this will be supplied to successful applicants (but you're welcome to email us with any questions - hello@mandymoney.com.au)

The application process shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. We ask a few questions about your year level and how to best contact you.

The big question to focus on is... Why do you believe you should be selected for Movers & Makers day? What makes you an entrepreneur? Have you had any experience with an entrepreneurial venture or activity? Tell us all about it! We love to hear about any experience, big or small 🙂

You can stop and start at any point during the application and come back to it... We recommend saving your answers somewhere safe in case you have to re-apply for some reason!

Once you apply, the next step is just to sit back and wait. We'll let you know the outcome of your application by September 15th 🙂

Contact us at hello@mandymoney.com.au!
