The Paddl Games Team is very excited to tell you about our next major experience event. Paddl has teamed up with COSBOA (Council of Small Business Organisations Australia) which is a council made up of 29 organisations representing 600,000 small and medium businesses across Australia. COSBOA, the Victorian Government, Paddl Co., the Business Council of Australia and some major businesses are coming together to create a series of innovation challenges in Victoria in August and September 2018.

The COSBOA Innovation Games (Victoria) 2018

The COSBOA Innovation Games (Victoria) 2018 will involve 50 businesses, 300 Victorian students and graduates and 200 employees coming together to form teams in 5 separate Innovation Challenges that will be held in various locations across Victoria (Regional Victoria and Melbourne).

We are calling for you to register your interest in participating in one of the 5 Challenges. 60 Victorian tertiary students and graduates (you will be enrolled in or have graduated from a University, TAFE or RTO) will be chosen for each of the 5 Innovation Challenges (300 in total!).  

If selected, you will join a team of 10 people, each with a different skill set and level of experience, to create an Innovation Team ready to be allocated to one of the 50 businesses. You will bring your experience, knowledge and willingness to participate in an exciting day of brainstorming, ideating and designing solutions to whatever your allocated business challenges may be.

The Paddl Games facilitators will help you every step of the way: supporting you, teaching you critical and design thinking techniques, and other techniques and tips so you will be successful (and have lots of fun!) on the day.

You will have the opportunity to apply for jobs and also network with employers and other participants. Plus, we will feed you during the day and there will be awesome prizes to be won!
