This is the fourth Future Entrepreneurs Forum, co-hosted by Chiasma and NZBIO, and sponsored by Simpson Grierson! This forum has been specifically designed for our postgraduate student members to provide you with a unique opportunity to meet prominent industry members working in the science-commercialisation space.
This is not "just another networking event" - as part of this forum we have organised for students to participate in a panel discussion with key industry leaders. The discussion will be centred around:
Innovation and the business of science. What are the biggest innovation challenges for science companies? How do business considerations support or hinder innovation?
Panel members include:
- Brian Ward, CEO, Mesynthes
- Maxine Simmons, CEO, Cure Kids Ventures
- Faye Sumner, CEO, MTANZ
- Paul Oei, CEO, Igenz
- Carina Sim-Smith, Director, ClearSight
- Mark Wilson, General Manager, Life Tech Laboratories
Date: Friday 17 July 2015
Time: 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm, followed by light refreshments
Venue: Simpson Grierson, Level 28 Lumley Centre, 88 Shortland, Auckland St
