Dive deeper into our initiatives, and join our Managing Partner, Brett Lunn, as he offers insights into Australia's vibrant innovation landscape and the collective role we can play in shaping its future.
FB Rice is at the forefront of championing local innovation. Our commitment is not just spoken, we are actively engaged with a number of industry initiatives, from teaching and mentoring to supporting underrepresented entrepreneurs and innovators. Our collaboration with industry organisations and accelerator programs highlights our commitment to advancing innovation in Australia.
Dive into the video below where Brett Lunn, Managing Partner at FB Rice, shares his insights on Australia’s thriving innovation ecosystem and details our collective commitment to propelling innovation forward.
We are involved with the Australian Academy for Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE)'s Elevate program. This $41.2 million initiative aims to empower women in STEM and particularly welcomes applications from individuals who identify as members of other minority and disadvantaged groups. Beyond financial assistance, the program strives to rectify gender disparities in STEM by cultivating more women-led collaborations between industry and academia in applied research and business, enhancing the professional skills of women in STEM, and propelling them into leadership roles.
We are also affiliated with ATSE’s mentoring and professional development initiative, IMNIS, which prepares emerging STEM leaders to excel in the STEM ecosystem. This involvement supports PhD students and early to mid-career researchers in broadening their industry understanding, recognising the requisite skills for success, exploring diverse career pathways, and expanding their professional networks.
Innovation supports economic growth and ensures future generations benefit from the same advancements we have experienced. That is why FB Rice will always remain a strong advocate for innovation.
