What’s an entrepreneur?


An entrepreneur is someone who starts their own business, especially when this involves seeing a new opportunity.

For parents

What kind of safety measures do you have in place for children?


We’re a child safe organisation, and we align our policies and procedure with the Child Safe Organisations approach created by the Australian Human Rights Commission. All of the adults and mentors working in our programs have current ‘working with children’ and NSW Police checks.




Does my child need to have a business idea to attend the Zig Zag Hub?


No, we welcome children that are keen to develop an idea and support them in the process of identifying what that may be. We place equal value on developing an idea as we do on growing it. We offer professional and supportive guidance in exploring many avenues and multitude of ideas to help your child find the one that they are most passionate about and want to explore further.




Is my child going to develop an active business?


Not necessarily. The focus of the Zig Zag Hub is on developing entrepreneurial skills that are extremely important and relevant in the 21st century. Although many children that attend The Zig Zag Hub develop an active business, our focus is on the journey not the destination. We see huge value in authentic experiences where making mistakes encourages growth and failure opens opportunities for improvement.




What happens if my child’s idea does not ‘grow legs’?


This is something that most of us experience in life and our children will too. We believe that supporting children in dealing with unexpected outcomes will increase their resilience and problem-solving skills. The facilitators at the Zig Zag Hub will guide your child in the process of identifying what went wrong and exploring possible opportunities within the situation. We have seen many businesses flourish as they encounter challenges, problem solve solutions and sometimes pivot in the most unexpected direction.

“You must learn to fail intelligently. Failing is one of the greatest arts in the world. One fails forward towards success.”

Thomas Edison (America’s greatest inventor)




Who are the facilitators and what do they do?


The facilitators at The Zig Zag Hub will be working with children every session to guide them on the journey of entrepreneurship. The role of a facilitator is to encourage each child’s progress through discussions, critical analysis, inspiration, cooperative work, reflection, and other strategies. The child will always maintain ownership of their idea. The facilitator will gather resources and connect children with industry experts that can offer feedback and support each child on each stage of their journey.

All facilitators have current Working With Children Checks and Police Checks.
