Earlier this year, MGen was accepted into a business incubator co-presented by Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Social Enterprise giant Cause4. I'll be representing MGen as the founder for one year until September 2018.
I'm feeling incredibly 'chuffed' to have relocated to London and started the course off with a bang! MGen is entering it's next phase, with the aims of making music education more accessible to more people and a myriad of different ways.
I have a dream which prompted me to submit MGen for this course, or as called in the course, a BHAG (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal).
Become profitable enough to fund Saptak in Mumbai and Pokhara
If at the end of this program, this dream is viable, I'll consider MGen participation worthwhile. We need some serious growth to happen, particularly in our newer states like South Australia, Queensland and Tasmania. We'll be doing this primarily through upgrading our technology systems and recruiting strategy, on a management level as well as in regards to our teachers.
Some other goals I hope to achieve in line with our ethos of music accessibility are as follows:
- creating a better sense of community for students and teachers of MGen
- providing lower cost options for those who're unable to afford our private lessons
- better communication about our social projects, within MGen and outside
- provide programs and opportunities to institutions such as schools and nursing homes around Australia
I see a natural progression happening where MGen will shift towards working as an agency, providing a service not just for students, but for teachers as well, finding them work. This is likely to change and MGen will likely take a very different shape to what is it now. But at the forefront of that change will remain our vision.
Make music accessible.
