About the event

Calling All Cockburn Innovators and Entrepreneurs!

  • Are you ready to transform your clever idea into a high-growth enterprise?  
  • Do you want to hothouse your idea with some of the best minds in WA’s innovation, startup and investor communities? 
  • Would a City of Cockburn scholarship worth $3,750 to take part in Ignition help your dreams become a reality? 

 If you said yes to all of the above, then apply for the City of Cockburn’s Ignition scholarship and experience an immersive week of world-class training alongside 90 WA innovators, investors, and mentors! 
That’s what 2023 scholarship winner John-Paul Grosser did—and his great ideas for affordable housing have now been patented and are on the way to commercialisation.
