PwC’s 21st Century Minds Accelerator Program

The National Youth Science Forum has been selected to take part in PwC’s 21st Century Minds (21CM) Accelerator Program.

21CM is designed to unearth, grow and scale Australia’s best STEM education initiatives focused on building Australia’s pipeline of innovators and problem solvers.

NYSF is one of 20 organisations selected to take part in the initiative through an intense and bespoke acceleration process, which will help the NYSF achieve rapid and effective scale.

“Being selected to be part of this program is very exciting for the NYSF,” says CEO of the NYSF, Dr Damien Pearce. “It will allow us to access a strategic planning process to support our existing work in this area, as well as opening up networks for future activities.”

The program provides access to the PwC’s probono services, a mentor team, the opportunity to access skills, expertise, products or unique resources of collaborators and the potential to pitch at the 21CM event in late 2016 that will be attended by PwC, program supporters and other interested investors.
