Why participate

Smart Seeds participants are aspiring innovators and change makers in the early stages of their careers with up to 7 years’ experience.

Our participants work together to inspire new thinking and influence change by tackling complex challenges collaboratively defined by local community and industry leaders.

Participants also connect globally to form a growing Alumni community who share the purpose, skills and mindsets to influence change and create solutions that deliver community outcomes.

The experience provides participants with the capabilities, confidence and connections to lead new thinking, drive change and relish uncertainty within the infrastructure industry.

How to join

Registrations are open to participants from across the infrastructure industry, including professionals providing technical, financial, creative, social and legal services on projects.

Many organisations and community groups will sponsor participants to join Smart Seeds because they recognise the value of investing in the next generation of industry and community leaders. These organisations will also gain access to the fresh thinking and opportunities to deliver on the potential value generated by the ideas pitched.

A growing contingent of young freelancers and contractors also join Smart Seeds to invest in their own learning and development and connect with peers working across the infrastructure industry.

Smart Seeds is a transformational experience – let a few of our past participants and mentors tell you more about it.
