Developed by the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) and the National Australia Bank, $20 Boss is an in-school challenge, run by teachers, which provides your students $20 of start-up money to create their own business. At the end of the program, students are encouraged to pay back the start-up money, with a $1 legacy payment. It’s a fantastic way to engage young people in an immersive experience at school that encourages their entrepreneurial spirit.
In 2016: 236 schools registered, 10,186 students participated and 2,500 businesses were created.
Last year $20 Boss held state-based awards with the aim to reward young entrepreneurs and the schools that support them across the country. Meet the winners by clicking the button below.Meet the winners
