Telstra Foundation’s Free Innovation Bootcamp for NFPs
Tuesday, 5th April 2016 at 8:24 pm

The Telstra Foundation is offering a free innovation bootcamp custom-designed exclusively for the needs of the Not for Profit sector – so apply now.

While it’s not likely that blockchain, augmented and virtual reality, AI, robotics or the Internet of Things are on the radar of your average Not for Profit, but one day they just might be, according to General Manager of the Telstra Foundation, Jackie Coates, who is inviting organisations to apply now for free innovation bootcamps being offered in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

That’s the nature of technology, what seems a radical idea when it first appears, ubiquitously, over time, becomes woven into our business as usual.  

At the Telstra Foundation, we love the intersection of digital and social innovation an intersection full of opportunity to re-imagine, to think bigger, bolder and differently about what is possible with technology.  

We see its benefits everyday and we’re lucky to work with many organisations, like our partners ReachOut Australia and Cerebral Palsy Alliance, who are driving better social outcomes for young people, enabled by technology.

It’s this “tech for good” potential that has led us to extend our social innovation programs to help Not for Profits to build their skills in this area and we are now pleased to launch the Telstra Imaginarium for Non-Profits.

The Telstra Imaginarium for Non-Profits is a free innovation bootcamp, custom-designed exclusively for the needs of the Not for Profit sector.

Our aim is to help Not for Profits that work with young people to reimagine their digital future with a focus on:

  • Service Design – including design thinking, user research and prototyping.
  • Business Design – including theory of change, business case and impact evaluation.
  • Digital Design & Product Development – including co-design, LEAN vs Agile, MVPs and engaging agencies.

Our program features expert industry mentors and social innovation thought leaders to equip participants with the skills and tools they need to bring great digital ideas to life. The bootcamp will run two days a week, over three weeks, in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Melbourne

23 to 24 May, 30 May to 1 June, 6 to 7 June 2016

Sydney

14 to 15 June, 20 to 21 June, 27 to 28 June 2016

Brisbane

11 to 12 July, 18 to 19 July, 25 to 26 July 2016

The Telstra Imaginarium for Non-Profits is open to anyone currently employed by a registered Australian Not for Profit that works to improve the lives of young people in Australia. 120 places are available, 40 spots per city. Selection criteria apply. Travel and accommodation costs are not included.

Got an appetite to innovate with digital?

If you have a passion to see what’s possible with technology to create change in the world, and are currently employed by a non-profit that improves the lives of young people in Australia – we want you!

Applications open on 4 April 2016 and close on 29  April 2016.

    Hello all – I just went to submit a lengthy application for the Telstra Imaginarium workshops, that included quite a range of details about us and how we are working with young people, however as soon as I pressed submit – a message came up with ERROR.
    Is there any way I could check if this came through under my name and for the Earthwatch Institute. It took quite a bit of time and I’m so hoping it did actually get through.
    Many thanks in advance for your reply. Regards,
    Ari
