Applications for China Australia Millennial Project (CAMP) 2017 are now open

Calling all millennials with a passion for innovation and social change, the China Australia Millennial Project (CAMP) is on the hunt for young leaders and innovators to join our award-winning bilateral program in 2017.

CAMP 2017 is now happening in China AND Australia!

The CAMP 2017 Program is a 100 day experience for 150 people under 35 made up of 3 components; a 5-day face-to-face summit in China, a 90-day online program and finally a 5-day face-to-face summit in Sydney. Over the 100 days, participants co-create new businesses and business solutions, level-up their professional skills and networks and forge deep friendships. CAMPers are globally connected, hyper-skilled and will change the world.

The program incorporates three distinct frameworks across the learning experience for every participant.

  1. INTERCULTURAL LEADERSHIP – Build the skills needed to forge high performing teams located in Australia and China.
  2. INNOVATION via Stanford University’s’s design thinking methodology.
  3. ENTREPRENEURSHIP – A blend of lean startup methodology and project management, experience what it takes to start something amazing.

For more information on how to apply please visit the CAMP Website.



Shortly after kicking off the CAMP program online, all 2017 CAMPers will converge in Shanghai.

Over a 5 day summit, we will tour the innovation ecosystem of this amazing city, as well as visit Australia’s Landing Pad for startups and Fishburners new co-working space. CAMPers will meet their team mates face to face and together participate in workshops, master classes and get some good quality social time together.


90 days later (roughly) after meeting each other for the first time, 2017 CAMPers will enter the final phase of CAMP, touching down in Sydney.

Together once again, they will refine their co-created business concept and prepare for the final deliverable, pitching their project to a judging panel of VC’s, angel investors, corporates, government, talent scouts and more.


So for the ThinkTanks!

A ThinkTank is the model in which leading businesses can pose a commercial challenge to the team in the form of a question.

CAMP 2017 is running 15 ThinkTanks, each containing 10CAMPers. Each ThinkTank is split into 2 project teams who each co-design a solution which will address the commercial challenge.

At the final pitch in Sydney, project teams pitch their projects back to the businesses, who then have the opportunity to support the team as they move forward and develop the concept.

What happens next?

Well, basically anything can happen!

We’ve had teams go on to jump into leading accelerators, find a new inspiring career with our corporate partners, form a new team with people they met at CAMP and go make something brilliant happen, we’ve even hired CAMPers from 2015 to be part of our own team.

It’s really up to you how exactly you extract value. We promise whatever you put in, you’ll get much more in return!
