Free Innovation Information Seminar for Businesses in Griffith

Date: Tuesday, 27th of July
Venue: Griffith Leagues Club

Innovation is the competitive weapon of this century. Bringing ideas to market however, needs a solid systemised approach to the commercialisation process, for the idea to be fully realised.

Turning opportunity into Commercial Reality will outline the steps to consider when commercialising your idea or service It will cover what elements are required to build value into your company, manage your intellectual property and strategies to e?ectively grow your business or build value into the business and getting it ready to sell. With state and federal sources now opening up to support innovation and early stage commercialisation, there are new avenues to consider for SME’s. This presentation will cover how this support could work for your company.

And with debt equity harder to come by these days for small business, many companies are looking at private equity.

Turning opportunity into Commercial Reality will be presented by Dan Liszka, Sharon Adams, Peter Steer, Leon Skaliotis, Duncan Farquhar, Matthew Warnken, William Hird & Marion Heathcote.

  • Reduce the need to take on excessive levels of debt.
