Future Entrepreneurs' Forum 2015 - Auckland

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
