  • CORE Innovation Hub FLUX, 191 Saint Georges Terrace Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

Do you have a bold idea? Ever wanted to start your own company? Do you want to consult professionally? Successfully navigate a range of professional sectors? Where do you begin? How do you engage beyond academia? Engage with entrepreneurs, drive a startup, and contribute to accelerating Australia's innovation?

As part of the Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) you can connect with some dynamic individuals at this event – Meet the Entrepreneur. Invited professionals 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 at Core Innovation Hub in Perth CBD. This meetup will run from 7:30 am - 9:30 am, with talks from our invited entrepreneurs followed by Q&A between 8:00 am - 9:00 am. This is an excellent opportunity to meet outstanding STEM professionals and industry leaders over a coffee.

In addition to our Energy-Minerals program participants, this is the first event in WA to welcome some of the STEM PhD students and professionals from the soon-to-start MedTech-Pharma program, so you'll see a few new faces. Please make them feel welcome!

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.
