Launched in 2021, the IYE Pre-Accelerator Program is not your typical program; it's a dynamic six-month journey designed exclusively for young entrepreneurs aged 15-30. This is more than an opportunity—it's a catalyst for transforming your business dreams into reality.


What sets us apart? Generous funding from corporate partners and individual leaders who are as passionate as you are about nurturing the next wave of entrepreneurial trailblazers. This isn't just an investment in a program; it's an investment in your potential and the future we're building together.


Our curriculum isn't about fluff; it's about actionable insights. From cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset through validating your business model to navigating legal complexities, we cover all the essentials. This isn't theory; it's a roadmap for turning ideas into impactful ventures.

But the journey doesn't end there. As a participant, you'll unlock exclusive access:

  1. Our Networks: Connect with influential business leaders, including our esteemed sponsors. This isn't just about networking; it's about forging relationships that propel your vision forward.

  2. IYE Community: Step into a vibrant digital space where support is constant. Beyond the program, access a treasure trove of videos, webinars, and resources—your toolkit for sustained success.

Are you within 15-30 years old, and ready to turn your entrepreneurship aspirations into achievements? The IYE Pre-Accelerator Program is your launchpad.

Application for 2024 IYE Pre-accelerator Program has CLOSED. Application for the next cohort is yet to open. 

Business Builder Community

The success of the IYE Pre-Accelerator Program is a testament to the unwavering support of our Business Builder Community, made up of sponsors, business mentors and facilitators. They invest not just finances, but also their time and expertise to fuel the growth of our entrepreneurs.

Young People at a Workshop

Introducing the Getting Down to Business (GD2B) Program by iGen Foundation—an innovative youth entrepreneurship initiative developed in close collaboration with program sponsors, including other charitable organizations, social enterprises, and Local Government Areas (LGAs), as well as federal government agencies.

GD2B is not a one-size-fits-all solution; it's a bespoke program crafted to address the specific needs and objectives of the target youth group. Drawing from our diverse delivery modes—Big Ideas Days, Business Builder Workshops, Pre-Accelerator, and Accelerator Programs—we co-create a tailored program that ensures meaningful outcomes.

One key feature of GD2B is its whitelabelling capability, allowing our program sponsors to showcase their commitment to youth entrepreneurship under their brand. iGen Foundation serves as the dedicated service provider, ensuring seamless program delivery on behalf of our partners.


Unlock the potential of youth entrepreneurship with GD2B—a program designed for impact, collaboration, and measurable results. Join forces with iGen Foundation to empower the next generation of business leaders. Contact us to explore how GD2B can align with your goals and make a lasting impact in your Local Government Area.
