OUR IMPACT

On Campus

Our project-based classes bring together students to collaboratively tackle real-world challenges. Each year we offer about 35 quarter-long classes for credit, and about 40 shorter learning experiences called Pop Up classes or Pop Out workshops.

The Numbers

Each year, Bloom engages with nearly 10% of University of Western Australia students across all faculties on campus. Since 2015, we’ve offered over 100 pop-up classes.

Harder to quantify but perhaps equally important are the numerous skills & concepts students have incorporated into new contexts in & outside the classroom.

The Stories

Bloom has affected thousands of entrepreneurs and changed their paths in profound ways. We see three repeating patterns:

  • Founders who change their field of work and study
    Some gain skills and perspectives that they take back to their primary discipline and fuel innovation there.

  • Youth who impact the world by launching new organisations
    Some launch new organisations that are quite literally changing the world

  • People who discover their own sense of purpose
    Many will simply say, “This changed my life.”

I can feel it when I walk in. There is so much energy here. People are crazy about the ideas they are coming up with and they want to make them into a reality.

- Anna Lee 2018

Georgia Hay reflects on her Bloom experience.

In her final undergraduate year at UWA, Georgia got involved in one of Bloom’s workshops, where she’s now realised how she’s going to use her academic understanding and make an impact in the world. 

OUR IMPACT

In The World

Our project-based classes bring together students to collaboratively tackle real-world challenges. Each year we offer about 35 quarter-long classes for credit, and about 40 shorter learning experiences called Pop Up classes or Pop Out workshops.

The Numbers

Money shows traction. But that's not what our community is driven by. It's purpose.

Harder to quantify is the value that all our members have to their respective customers, beyond monetary. We have some amazing organisations doing a lot of good.

Beyond Our Walls

Bloom's aims to grow and support founders to thrive beyond our walls, we strive to help scale and develop game-changing solutions. We do this through;

  • Entrance into later stage programs
    We help plan your founder journey, whether that's in WA, interstate or abroad.

  • Providing experienced mentors
    The founder journey is difficult, that is why some sage advice from others that have done it before can help you get through those tough times.

  • Understanding the problem you are trying to solve
    From figuring what you change you want to see, to how you are as a leader, we aim to help create the solid foundations as a founder and not just for your startup.

Bloom is the place to take the leap. You're surrounded by other passionate and compassionate people who are there - for the good, the great and the ugly.
