Nathaniel Diong

Melbourne, Victoria

Gen-Z educator, social entrepreneur

Nathaniel was still in school when he launched Future Minds Network. He’s since worked with more than 11,000 students to tackle youth unemployment through entrepreneurship. Through hyper-engaging programs, students learn from ex-founders at YCombinator (birthplace of Airbnb), Harvard, and Oxford to build start-ups with an impact. They practise key skills for future employment, such as communication and problem-solving, and create their own jobs for the future. In addition to building the next generation of founders, investors and social innovators, he is also an international start-up mentor, an Entrepreneur-in-Residence and sits on eight non-for-profit boards – all while studying at university.
