MBA Career Resource Centre - Industry Breakfast

28 March, 2017 - 07:15 to 09:00
Customs House, 399 Queen Street, Brisbane QLD 4000

The start-up world is fast becoming the new black. People from all walks of life and disciplines are discovering new ways of doing business, earning big money, disrupting and innovating the status quo.

Join us for the first MBA Industry Breakfast of the year on Tuesday, 28 March to hear from Dr Glen Richards - vet, entrepreneur and angel investor. Glen will take us on his journey from regional vet to a multi-millionaire having established a veterinary and specialty pet care retail empire spanning Australia, New Zealand and China with more than 5,500 employees.

Since moving from an executive role, Glen is now angel investor, mentor and strategist and a regular on the hit channel 10 series Shark Tank. In this capacity, Glen will provide insight into the capabilities and characteristics that investors and entrepreneurs look for when recruiting talent to take on positions of business development and market expansion.

Following breakfast we invite you to attend a start-up focus group where you will be able to meet with and speak to industry experts currently working actively with start-up businesses. Find out how essential it is to engage with an IP Lawyer, how to be investment and pitch ready, explore business models with taxation experts and find out about the grants available to you.

Places are limited, so please register by Friday, 17 March 2017.
