Recently, we sat down with Jahin Tanvir, CEO of the Australian School of Entrepreneurship, who is spearheading the Western Sydney Young Entrepreneur Sprint. This series of workshops caters to young individuals with a business-oriented mindset, offering engaging and interactive learning experiences.

The Western Sydney Young Entrepreneur Sprint is Western Sydney's first ever startup incubator for young founders, powered by the City of Parramatta. It is designed to empower and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs through ideation, financial literacy, public speaking and sustainability.

Jahin shared the following insight with us on the program taking place at the Western Sydney Startup Hub, powered by Spacecubed.

“During our first session we saw 40 young individuals based in Western Sydney, aged between 18 and 27, attend to embark on their entrepreneurial journey. Throughout the session, they delved into transforming their innovative ideas into thriving businesses and impactful social enterprises”

We asked Jahin why he chose the Western Sydney Startup Hub as the home base for the Young Entrepreneur Sprint, and he shared the following.

“We felt the Western Sydney Startup Hub would be an ideal spot to cultivate youth entrepreneurship and startups, and with our partnership with the City of Parramatta, we felt it would be perfect to hold it in Parramatta as well.”

Jahin previously worked out of the Western Sydney Startup Hub as an Impact Scholar and has many impressive achievements under his belt, including being named on the 40 under 40 Most Influential Asian-Australians for 2022, at the age of 21 years old.

Jahin's favourite advice recently has come from Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, who said “optimism, obsession, self-belief, raw horsepower and personal connections are how things get started,” which Jahin shared with the young entrepreneurs in the first session.

Opportunities for young people to have access to alternative education pathways that help them gain confidence and learn new skills are essential, so this free program run by an inspiring local entrepreneur who is striving to help other young people reach their full potential is excellent for the Western Sydney community.

Jahin will be sharing updates on the alumni from this program as he helps develop their products and services, so you can anticipate hearing many success stories over the next few months.
