Raising Investment Capital for Commercialisation and CSC Launch by Minister Dave Kelly MLA

Innovation is hard but commercialisation is often even more challenging and usually requires substantial capital. We commonly hear from innovators that there is “no risk money out there” and from investors that “there is plenty of money but not enough good deals”. What’s the real story??

      Description

      We are pleased to announce Minister Dave Kelly will be officially launching the Commercialisation Studies Centre (CSC), which will be followed by our inaugural event, a panel session discussing “Raising Investment for Commercialisation”.  
       
      The CSC has been established by a group of founders dedicated to providing a deeper understanding of commercialisation by connecting international research findings with the Perth business and innovation ecosystem to drive more successful commercial outcomes and deepen the commercial maturity of businesses. 
       
      Innovation is hard but commercialisation is often even more challenging and usually requires substantial capital.  We commonly hear from innovators that there is “no risk money out there” and from investors that “there is plenty of money but not enough good deals”.  What’s the real story??    
       
      This event will feature a short academic perspective from Professor Tim Mazzarol on funding for commercialisation, followed by a panel of two of Perth’s leading entrepreneurial trailblazers who have completed unconventional capital raisings and two industry experts who will provide insights into the range of funding sources in Perth.
       

      Tim Mazzarol, is a Winthrop Professor within the UWA Business School where he specialises in entrepreneurship, innovation, small business management, marketing and strategy. He is a Qualified Professional Market Researcher (QPMR) with the Australian Market and Social Research Society (AMSRS). In addition, Tim is an Affiliate Professor of the Burgundy School of Business, Group ESC Dijon, Bourgogne France. He is also the Coordinator of the UWA Co-operative Enterprise Research Unit (CERU), and Director of the Centre for Entrepreneurial Management and Innovation (CEMI).

      Mark Pivac, Executive Director and Chief Technology Officer of FBR (Fastbrick Robotics). Raising funds through an Initial Public Offering (IPO) provided Mark and FBR with initial funding and provided a ready source for further capital raising. Hear how FBR prepared for the IPO and how this accelerated their development phase and focussed their business.
       
      Julian Ilich, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Tiller Rides. Julian’s recent journey raising capital has focussed on using Equity Crowdfunding, a very recently developed investment option. We will hear more from Julian on how to prepare if you think this is your preferred pathway.
       
      John MacKinnon, Investment Director at Jolimont Global. Jolimont Global is one of the leading VC funds in Australia specialising in high growth mining equipment, technology and services companies.  John knows how VC’s think and what they are looking for in an investment.
       
      Sheryl Frame, Commercialisation Adviser at Entrepreneurs Program, will provide information on the Accelerating Commercialisation program and other Federal Government Funding Programs. Sheryl’s own past business successes qualify her to help entrepreneurs when applying for government funding and to support them on their commercialisation journey.
