The Percy Hobart Fellowship is a full-time, 12 week innovation learning programme for service personnel, providing Fellows with the skills and expertise to drive innovation across defence. The programme brings together theoretical and practical experience through a combination of lectures, workshops, a startup placement, mentorship, and an innovation project.
Through a series of weekly lectures, workshops, and innovator talks, Fellows cover a curriculum focused on digital transformation, entrepreneurship, commercial dynamics, defence technology, and innovative thinking.
10 week immersion in a digital startup, for a first-hand experience of a dynamic, innovative company as they apply new technologies, business models and working practices. Previous placement startups have included OLIO, Amplyfi, Red Sift, Tympa Health and CAURA.
One to one weekly mentoring and coaching sessions from our team of expert coaches, including entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and performance coaches.
Fellows put their learnings into practice by developing an innovative solution to a problem they have faced in defence. At the end of the programme, they pitch their proposals to senior command.
