All our entrepreneurship programs have an overlay of interculturalism. This is so your community receives not only economic benefits from business growth but social benefits from more people from different cultural backgrounds knowing each other, creating stronger interpersonal and community relationships.

OPEN NEW LOCAL NETWORKS AND BUSINESS SKILLS WITH YOURMENTOR 

iGen Foundation stands for innovation generation: the ability for new and existing businesses to access mentoring by highly skilled and experienced business owners.  iGen is fully funded and resourced by Enterprising Partnerships.


iGen's has two critical Missions: to promote youth entrepreneurship and the adoption of interculturalism as a government policy and practice position in Australia via its work with local governments and convening the DiverCities Network of Australasia.


From technology to transport, fashion to farming, local businesses in your community will grow through new networks, new markets and new ideas co-created by highly skilled volunteer business owners and their mentees in our YourMentor initiative.


We know it works because we have matched more than 180 mentees with appropriate mentors!

MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR COMMUNITY'S DNA

WITH DIVERCITIES NETWORK AUSTRALASIA

Founded and coordinated by iGen Foundation, DiverCities Network Australia (DNA) is a unique partnership between intercultural practitioners and academics and cities, shires and towns that value intercultural interaction within their communities. 


DNA operates across Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

DIVERSITY: it's in our DNA.

DiverCities Network Australasia is directly linked to the Council of Europe's Intercultural Cities Programme with international networks into more than 120 cities, provinces and towns in more than 33 countries and country networks with more than 50 cities and towns in Spain, Portugal, UK, Canada, Italy, Sweden, Canada, Morocco and Ukraine.


Interculturalism isn't another 'ism'. Interculturalism isn't a brand, it creates a space for everyone in your local community.

Mentor and connect with other members of the 120+ cities, shires and towns across 33 countries.


Leverage the value of cultural, language and faith diversity of your community. 


For new migrants, increase the chances of success for settlement and inclusion in your community.


For existing Indigenous and non-Indigenous residents, create meaningful relationships with new and long term migrants to increase social cohesion, harmony and local economic development.
