Big Ideas Challenge

This is a callout for BIG IDEAS.

Is there a problem you’re itching to solve?

A product or solution you’re looking to get to market?

Or perhaps you want to make the world a better place.

Enterprize Tasmania presents the 2020 Big Ideas Challenge! A two-day bootcamp for you and your idea.

Burnie Thursday 2nd - Friday 3rd April

Launceston Thursday 30th April - Friday 1 May

Awards night Launceston, Friday 29th May

Entry criteria & categories:

  • Your idea addresses a genuine problem.
  • The solution possesses a degree of innovation.
  • The individual or team can deliver the product/service/solution.
  • There is a sizable potential (accessible) market for your solution.
  • The solution possesses a degree of scalability.


Ideas that have the potential to become successful businesses. If your idea is about making money, then this is the category for you.

Social Impact

Ideas that will make a difference. It might be tackling the climate crisis, a social or environmental issue or taking action in any other way that helps vulnerable people who need it. If your idea can generate income whilst doing so, even better.

Smart Cities/IoT

We’re looking for ideas that involve the innovative application of Internet of Things devices and technology (including the LoRa network) in tackling challenges in areas such as Industrial, Agriculture, Transport, Healthcare, Retail, Home, City and Lifestyle. While tech is important, entrants in this category should also consider the commercial potential of their idea.
