The Venturer Program

The Venturer Program is a seven-day mission involving a range of activities and challenges designed to build the mental stamina and physical resilience that is a hallmark of all successful entrepreneurs.

The program is run by Ben Southall (OQCE Adventurer in Residence and Best Job in the World winner), who has built a career taking entrepreneurs and corporate executives out of their comfort zones and on resilience-building travel adventures around the world.

You don’t need to be a startup founder to apply, but you do need to be an active participant in the Queensland entrepreneurial ecosystem and open to discussing and improving your own resilience profile.

Applications close midnight 2 June 2017.
