There is no doubt that the last decade has seen a huge increase in the depth of innovation focused capital in Australia – but it has never been sufficient to fund the size of the opportunity. Navigating the so-called ‘Valley of Death’ remains a challenge for local entrepreneurs and innovators.

In this lively panel session, Robotics expert Professor Sue Keay and health-focused VC Ben Constable focus on what’s working in Australia, and where there are gaps in the innovation system that needs attention. The session is moderated by commercialisation specialist Adrian Beer, who draws out practical insights on how Australia can build confidence and capital to maximise the opportunities that are in front of us.

Adrian Beer contributed a policy paper titled Australia must get over its IP obsession.
