iGen Foundation is a charitable organisation created and funded by Enterprising Partnerships to:

  • advance the capability of young entrepreneurs and innovators in Australia

  • advance the building of sustainable, harmonious intercultural communities, practices and processes leveraging culturally diverse innovation in Australia and 

  • advance to good governance and impact of not-for-profit organisations in Australia

Youth entrepreneurship

We believe that education, employment and training are critical pathways to successful and happy lives for young people, however, they are not the only options. 


We believe that young people owning their own business is a noble and legitimate post-school outcome and allows young people to create the future they want.

We believe business ownership increases young people's economic contribution to Australian society, and can be undertaken regardless of language, faith, cultural, ability, gender, offending, homelessness or other background that may result in long term social disadvantage from stigmatisation or unemployment. 

We believe business ownership creates a socially inclusive life for young people. 

iGen Foundation is currently looking for sponsors to help young people to start or grow their own business. 

Make your mark on the future of young entrepreneurs.
Youth Business Mentoring

YourMentor is a program that matches successful business people with young entrepreneurs aged 15-30 years.

iGen Foundation has supported more than 160 young people with more than 160 mentors.

Intercultural Practice

Interculturalism is the practice of building meaningful relationships between individuals, families and communities from different cultural, language and faith backgrounds.

Intercultural societies are resilient societies which take full social, economic and political advantage of their diversity.
