WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
As a Business
The Glo Project is a global business program that matches businesses and startups with an international student team for the period of the program. The program holds a series of short workshops focusing on culture, branding, IP and investment.
This unique program is designed for the team to learn from each other.
The business will learn about global markets and culture, while students enjoy exposure to a real Australian business in the context of global culture. It is a mutually beneficial experience where local and international network are built and a greater understanding of culture is developed.
International students assist business to validate products and develop global strategies for appropriate product design, language and understanding of Political, Economic, Social and Technological factors in their countries.
As a Speaker or Mentor
Glo is always looking for experienced, globally focused mentors to support businesses and students as they build their strategies together to go global.
Glo programs provide access to a thriving Australian international business scene and working with the talented young people from over 30 countries.
As a Sponsor
The Glo Project is keen to partner and work with with corporations, businesses and educational institutions who wish to support Australian business to go global.
Other opportunities exist to support or fund access for international students to participate in the Glo Project.
Sponsorships and partnerships could include co-branding, direct marketing opportunities and speaking engagements at activities.
Glo will be an annual event celebrating Melbourne as a global hub of education and innovation.

“A note to mention how informative last night’s presentation was and what a great selection of speakers. Of course it all makes perfect sense when you see a presentation from an expert panel just how crucial it is to understand the cultural psyche of international countries before formulating a market entry plan. By the way, one of the students you allocated to us - Ananda - is a shining star.“
