If you have a new or existing social enterprise, or even just an idea for a project that you know would help a local or international community, then Rotary wants to hear from you. Applecross Rotary Club is bringing together the Rotary Clubs of Western Australia to provide a forum for you to pitch your idea to our Sharks, who are a group of successful Rotarians and other philanthropists who can take your project or idea to the next level. Initially there will be a focus on people who live and work in or near the Cities of Melville and Fremantle, alerting them that they have a number of local Rotary Clubs that would love to hear about the burning issue they want to address.  You will be given support in preparing your pitch by volunteers from ICON, a network of talented B2B professionals .
After vetting your proposal, you and your ICON mentor will be ready for you to make a case for support from our panel of Sharks representing Rotary Clubs across the state. The first thing to do is to go to the website and read the information, then complete the application form and send that off. Your submission will then be reviewed and if successful, the organisers to find you a suitable mentor from ICON to prepare for your pitch to the Sharks.
Everyone participating will gain additional presentation and business skills, and you may just be one of those selected by the Sharks to take your project to new heights.
