Word reaches us that the exciting world of IT entrepreneurship is coming to ANU next week:
In a full-day event called TECHCONNECT, taking place at the ANU Commons on 14 March, aspiring startups will hear from the likes of John De Margheriti, founder of BigWorld and Ken Kroeger, founder of Seeing Machines on why it’s important to ‘think big’, embrace risk, and learn from failure.
Industry leaders including Chief Executive of Commercialisation Australia Doron Ben-Meir; head of ANU Enterprise Sarah Pearson, and Brett Watkins from Telstra Applications and Ventures will cover off topics vital to start-up success, such as securing money from investors, making the most of enterprise partnerships, and building value into a company for a successful exit.
TECHCONNECT will also launch the Entrepreneurs in the ACT report which profiles 25 world-class founders who have build their companies from Canberra.
Registration is available on their website.
