cover art for Beyond the Breakthrough featuring Rohan McDougall

We are joined by Rohan McDougall, the director of commercialisation at Curtin University, to discuss the challenges faced by a remote ecosystem such as Perth.

We also talk about driving innovation in a region known for mining – which led to one of Curtin’s most prominent spinouts to date – and what the success of graphic design platform Canva means for the local venture capital scene.

McDougall also tells us about West Tech Fest and explains why Australian startups tend to list early.
