John Rivers, PhD student in the Pogson group, has been accepted to compete in the Australian French Entrepreneurship Challenge on June 2 2016. This competition pits interdisciplinary teams of PhD students against one another to come up with the best ‘innovative’ business idea in 24 hours. The ideas will then be judged by a panel, like on the television show ‘Shark Tank’. The Australian Academy of Science runs the competition, and the application process was competitive from all over Australia.
The Challenge will be opened by Brian Schmidt (read more).
