NextGen in Franchising invites young entrepreneurs to explore opportunities and to connect with the Franchising Industry

The NextGen in Franchising Global Competition is a worldwide program that engages millennial entrepreneurs seeking to grow their businesses through the franchise model, and the only business incubator in the world focused on franchising.

The Franchise Council of Australia, in conjunction with the International Franchise Association, once again encouraged the annual search for young entrepreneurs with an innovative business that could potentially be franchised (or is franchised) to submit applications to win a place in the global competition.

The Australian finalists chosen by the IFA to show their product or services globally and raise awareness of their product/brand will participate in the accelerated workshops with mentoring at their annual convention to be held in Las Vegas, NV 24 27 February 2019:


Jeremy Hassell

From a young age, I've always wanted to be an entrepreneur. I found myself in the construction industry and quickly grew out of it finding no real satisfaction in the industry. Since beginning an importing/wholesale/retail business with another friend from the construction industry. We grew that business in a short amount of time and sold it after we found a gap in the health industry. Now feeling like I make a difference the thirst for more has been a rewarding process. www.citycave.com.au
