Do you plan to be an entrepreneur or is it something that just happens?
In 2014, Lighthouse partnered with the University of Canberra to expose local student, academic staff and researchers to the options and opportunities available to them in the commercial world. They explored the issues of IP ownership, understanding the commercial value of IP and how IP can be commercialised in partnership versus an independent entity. This event became the basis of a number of working projects with the various research institutions in Canberra. As a result Lighthouse has seen a steady increase in the number of accidental entrepreneurs exploring their options.
