About Us

The Somerset Celebration of Entrepreneurship is an annual two-day festival held in September that acknowledges the problem solvers, creative thinkers and innovators of the Gold Coast and Queensland. Our Festival aims to bring together entrepreneurs and young people to share stories, collaborate and learn the secrets to success in the increasingly global workplace.

Somerset College is again hosting its highly anticipated Celebration of Entrepreneurship, where innovation and inspiration converge! This dynamic event, taking place September 10 and 11, 2023, is designed to ignite and nurture the entrepreneurial spirit among students.

Students will be immersed in the wisdom of accomplished keynote speakers and globally renowned entrepreneurs who, through firsthand accounts of triumphs and setbacks, will give invaluable insights into the world of business.

Our budding Year 9 entrepreneurs will again take centre stage, showcasing their products and engaging with the wider College community at their business stalls. Meanwhile, Year 6 students will unveil their YearSIXpreneur stalls, proving that age is no barrier to creativity and business acumen.

The Celebration of Entrepreneurship is not just an event; it's a gateway to knowledge, networks, and hands-on experiences that will empower students to shape their own futures.
