New pathways to research commercialisation

Hear from Australian tech investors reinventing how researchers become entrepreneurs.

Join us to hear from Alezeia Brown (Main Sequence Ventures) and Clare Birch (Blackbird Ventures) about two exciting new ways for researchers in deep tech to become entrepreneurs and commercialise their research.

Main Sequence Ventures have pioneered Venture Science – a repeatable way to grow the next generation of impactful companies with science at the core. Venture Science combines the mindset and tactics of venturing with the problem-solving depth of science to make giant leaps of progress.

Foundry is Blackbird’s flagship deep/bio-tech founder product. Blackbird says that research-led companies will cornerstone the solutions to humanity’s greatest problems. Foundry is their invitation to PhD students, EMCRs, and established researchers to imagine a better future and learn how to build it.

We will leave plenty of time for questions and discussion.
