We’re your new talent pipeline

Want to engage your students with
innovation and skills for the future?

The Knoei Colab is a big step towards solving the critical talent shortages of the future.

Industry, through mentoring these students, gains direct access to pre-qualified, dedicated and enthusiastic talent.

But it takes a solar system to raise curious and engaged students.
So we’re looking for sponsors, mentors and partners who share our vision of self-sufficient, young entrepreneurs changing the world one business at a time.

Chief Operating Officer

“ARM Hub are excited to partner with the Knoei Colab to provide lab space and host the robotics and advanced manufacturing stream. We don’t usually give access to the ARM Hub for schools.

The Knoei Colab students will have access to our maker space and our engineering talent to mentor their business ideas over the 18-month program. We also hope to engage our partners with intern positions for graduates.”

How can Industry help?

Sponsor a Student

Sponsoring a student helps to unlock potential, promote equity and inclusivity, and foster diversity. We want to support students from any walk of life to access the Knoei Colab.

Through your support, you’ll not only enable promising young innovators to access the resources and opportunities they need to excel, but you’ll also contribute to your company’s corporate social responsibility efforts.

Plus, you’ll be providing students with the chance to develop critical problem-solving, adaptability and creative skills, which will ultimately drive innovation and growth in your industry.

Mentorship Matters

Providing mentors for the Knoei Colab program is an excellent opportunity to engage and develop your existing employees.

As mentors, your staff will gain valuable leadership experience, broaden their professional networks, and deepen their understanding of the industry’s evolving needs.

As a mentor they’ll be guiding and supporting the next generation of professionals, imparting their knowledge and expertise to help students navigate their career paths.

Mentors are an essential part of the Colab, connecting students with real-life expertise and shaping their experience and ideas.
It’s often life-changing for the mentor, too.
