Growing the next generation of science entrepreneurs

14 June, 2020

We continue to support our researchers to take their science into the commercial sphere and in 2019 we teamed up with Exponential Founders (the XF90 programme) to identify outstanding researcher-entrepreneurs affiliated with the Institute.

We’ve supported these researchers and now leaders of start-ups into coaching programmes with successful entrepreneurs, Daniel Batten and Dr Shieak Tzeng, with the goal of instilling an ambitious growth mindset and breeding successful serial entrepreneurs right here in New Zealand.

The MacDiarmid Institute has been proactive in helping students develop skills necessary to be successful entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.
