18 Aug 4Dx’s Andreas Fouras speaks alongside Australia’s leading academics and experts at the AFR Innovation Summit 2016
Andreas Fouras, CEO of 4Dx, yesterday joined some of Australias leading scientists and academics at The Australian Financial Reviews Innovation Summit to discuss Australia’s need to change its attitude toward entrepreneurial failure to protect the economy from missing out on the benefits created by risk takers.
Dr Finkel, Australia’s chief scientist, who was also speaking, highlighted that Australia’s start-up ecosystem will find success with the right attitude, investments and policies. This, he says, could maximise Australia’s potential to punch well above its weight.
Andreas added during his round table ‘Deconstructing successful commercialization: Lessons from the coalface’ that a key success factor for innovation was that it is important to have more mobility between universities and business and with other research organisations such as the CSIRO.
