Science entrepreneurship

The Menzies Foundation is committed to raising the profile and importance of support for Australian entrepreneurial science and technology start-ups.

We are delighted to announce a partnership with the CSIRO ON Program, an Accelerator for research teams to validate and develop high potential innovative ventures. The Fellowship program will offer 3 Fellowships per annum.

Based on the concept of the world leading Talent Investor, Entrepreneur First, the Menzies Entrepreneurial Fellows program is Australia’s first science “Talent Investor” pipeline, and will support talented scientists to develop an idea and start a company to have a lasting impact.

Our aim is to pilot the Talent Investor Program approach to build a greater understanding of what helps and hinders Australian and technology start-ups and share these insights to contribute to knowledge regarding opportunities, barriers and impediments in Australian science entrepreneurship.

More details will follow in due course.
