Event description

Description

There are so many parallels between founding a small business and leading a research program, and an entrepreneurial mindset can facilitate resilience and success in either setting!

Do you have a bold idea? A prototype to optimise and license? Ever wanted to spin-out or start your own company? Or perhaps you'd like to be a consultant, or consult on the side? Where do you begin? How do you fund it? How do you drive a startup, engage with entrepreneurs, effectively compete for clients and accelerate Australian innovation? This discussion will include entrepreneurship, the startup landscape, research translation, key ingredients for success, funding, investment, and much more - all highly relevant in academic research and in business!

As part of the Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) you can connect with some dynamic individuals at this event – STEM Investors and Entrepreneurs. Invited founders and inventors will take us on an entrepreneurial adventure, highlight their successes and challenges along the way, and share their top pointers for collaboration and key advice for entrepreneurs-to-be to catapult their career!

Join our engaging speakers, special guests, mentors and mentees! This meetup will run from 7:30 am - 9:30 am, with talks from our invited entrepreneurs/investors followed by Q&A and networking. This is an excellent opportunity to meet outstanding STEM professionals and industry leaders over a coffee.

IMNIS is an award-winning initiative of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE) that connects motivated PhD students in STEM with executive-level industry mentors. IMNIS aims to narrow the cultural gap that exists between industry and academia in Australia.

A light breakfast will be served starting at 7.30am.
