[Melbourne, Victoria] – 12th February 2019 – Three Melbourne social impact entrepreneurs are releasing a documentary to inspire the next generation to follow their dreams, featuring international speaker Dr John DeMartini, CEO of Vinomofo Justin Dry and leading Australian nutritionist Lola Berry amongst others.
Liz Volpe alongside cousins David and Ross Fastuca have combined their passion for social impact, storytelling and technology to launch a world first, global platform Ambisie, which connects entrepreneurs to students in schools, colleges and universities, encouraging individuals to ‘give one hour’ to inspire students with their story.
The documentary, Generation Inspired, is a collection of stories told by everyday people who started with nothing but an idea. Some of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs have joined the cast to share their stories including Nicole Eckels (Founder of Glasshouse Fragrances), Emma Evans (CEO of Capi Sparkling) and Nathan Chan (CEO of Foundr Magazine) just to name a few.
Co-founder of Ambisie, David Fastuca was inspired to create the documentary after he learned that 84% of young people were not following their passions and that 70% of their entry-level jobs are at risk of automation in the future.
“The next generation is pushing ‘passion’ to the side when it comes to their career. Low confidence, a lack of guidance and not knowing where to start are some of the issues our young people face,” he said.
“Many end up choosing a career they don’t want because they don’t believe they can do what they love. We are not ok with that and created Ambisie and Generation Inspired to attack the issue head-on.”
The documentary will be launched in Melbourne, Geelong and Sydney in February 2019 and rolled out to 9000 schools across Australia. Partners include Vistaprint Australia, Rankin Business Lawyers, Creative Cubes Co. & Kimberlin Education.
