Rotary Shark Tank
Ever wondered how great ideas get off the ground and find funding? Your local Rotary club might be the answer!
Rotary Shark Tank is a forum for five social entrepreneurs to pitch an idea for a project that could help a local or international community. In this case the "Sharks" are successful Rotarians and other philanthropists, who believe they can help to nurture one or more of these projects or ideas to the next level.
The five finalists for 2018 were selected from 30 proposals submitted by the due date, and each is currently being mentored by a local member of ICON, an international organisations professional business communicators.
The five finalists are:
Aden Date who is looking for assistance in addressing the issue of poverty in East Africa, by recognising that East African communities are knowledge generators of their own solutions involving distinctly African Entrepreneurship.
Geraldine Maddrell wants help in creating Microhubs to provide resources, mentors and relevant information to people with disabilities, marginalised youth, refugees and immigrants to increase opportunities for inclusion through the development of small businesses linked to the person’s passions.
Darren Lomman wants to ensure there are more fish than plastic in the world's oceans by building and running a waste plastic bottle reprocessing plant in WA producing 3D printer filament.
Kirsten Shearn leads this Patricia Giles Centre Initiative to reduce the number of women returning to a violent partner, by addressing their financial security. If we can change this, we can protect vulnerable women and children and potentially save lives.
Stuart McLay is an emergency and intensive care doctor who wants to mobilise healthcare services to disaster areas through the use of a rapidly deployed sea-container-based medical service.
Come along and enjoy a meal, then and find out what the Rotary Sharks think about their ideas.
This event is open to the general public and Rotarians alike. Tickets $30 per person, meal included.
This event reinforces what Rotary stands for -- service to the community, to the nation and internationally; service in the cause of peace, education, providing food, water and sanitation, and promoting health and well being for all humanity.
