For our next monthly Seminar Series, we’re going to explore the steps to crafting a successful commercialisation funding application.
Our webinar ‘Show Me the Money: Tips for Preparing Successful Commercialisation Funding Applications’ is coming up on Wednesday, 18 November at 12-1:15pm AEST.
The landscape is competitive and well-executed applications can mean getting the right attention from commercially focused collaborators or investors.
Joining us is Rebecca Colless, a Communications Specialist at gemaker, a company providing expert advice, services and training to help start-ups commercialise new knowledge and technologies. Rebecca will talk to the strategy and tactics for translation/commercialisation funding applications.
MTPConnect Managing Director & CEO, Dr Dan Grant will share MTPConnect’s experience in developing major funding programs and the importance of getting the story right in applications.
Professor Kevin Pfleger, the Director of Biomedical Innovation from the University of Western Australia (UWA) is an academic with commercial experience, who will discuss differences between applications for research funding versus applications focused on translation/commercialisation development.
Andy Gearing is the CEO at BioComm Squared, and is an experienced grant assessor with an extensive track record in biotechnology in the UK and Australia raising seed finance, starting new companies and securing international licensing deals. He was a founder of Nexvet Biopharma which recently listed on NASDAQ. He will talk to the key differences between research and commercialisation applications, and what an assessor looks for when reviewing an application.
This session will be of interest to researchers, research offices, start-ups & SMEs
