ECU Watermark GetLINKED! Series

ECU Watermark GetLINKED! Series is a new and exciting initiative that aims to deliver a mix of presentations and practical workshops for industry, entrepreneurs and researchers alike, followed by purposeful networking sessions; all with the purpose of linking the world of academia with the business community.

The Series replaces the ECU Enterprise Tuesday Series, which ran successfully over two years in 2014 and 2015.

Sessions vary in content, and will be held across both Joondalup and Mount Lawley Campuses.

GetLINKED! provides an opportunity for the business community to mix with academic talent and researchers as well as providing an opportunity for all participants to ‘get linked’; build and extend quality networks.

Key benefits of the Series include:

  • You’ll have access to and hear from leading entrepreneurs about their journey
  • You’ll discover what it takes to commercialise your idea
  • You can identify your full IP value and how to protect it
  • You’ll develop an understanding of business opportunities and investment options
  • You’ll take away practical skills and valuable knowledge from industry professionals.

Upcoming sessions

Session Six: Dream, Hustle, Build

Are you a student or academic researcher wanting to commercialise an idea?  Are you a start-up or SME wanting to take your business to the next level?

Join us for an evening with David McQueen who will be sharing his story to inspire you to DREAM, HUSTLE and BUILD a life and career with success on your terms.
