Application Deadline: 3 DECEMBER 11.59PM AEDT
Launching in 2022, the Jessica King Fellowship gives aspiring entrepreneurs with disability (EwD) – or even those intrigued by entrepreneurship, the opportunity to explore the world of startups.
The Jessica King Fellowship was created in memory of Jessica who was a founder of abilio, a transport and navigation app that enabled people with disability to move throughout the city. Without her lived experience it is unlikely that the startup would have made it off the ground. abilio aimed to make the world accessible, to equalise independent access to life.
This Fellowship has been made possible with support from Steve King, Intopia and the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
Anyone who identifies as a person with a disability over the age of 16yrs, and is based in Australia.
The 6 month part-time experience includes:
• access to a $5,000 grant to spend towards opportunities exploring entrepreneurship
• Connections to mentors
• Opportunities to engage in work experience (where possible) with startups who have been through Remarkable.
The Fellowship will commence in February 2022 and go through until August 2022.
