Business Foundations, in a collaboration with researchers at Curtin University are proud to host and sponsor the Australian distribution of the Global University Entrepreneurial Spirit Students’ Survey).

In 2018 the project will record over 120,000 student experiences at Universities in more than 50 nations, including Australia. Online survey data is collected over a 6 month window (for Australia ending in 2019 to fit the student calendar) about the ways in which students are exposed to entrepreneurial events, experience’s and knowledge whilst studying.  It takes about 45 minutes to complete the survey online.  Australian students who complete the survey are eligible to be in the draw to win $2,000 in cash.
