    This event has passed Get Tickets

    Event description

    Australia has a unique history of 60,000 years of innovation led by the world's oldest civilisation. 

    This panel will bring together Indigenous speakers and design thinkers to explore some of these innovations through an entrepreneurial lens and to reflect on the value of Indigenous thinking for today's society. 

    The panel offers new perspectives for startups and innovators to learn from Indigenous innovation and to apply Indigenous thinking – as an approach that extends and complements the ethos of design thinking – in their own practice.

    MC: Associate Professor Martin Tomitsch, Director of Innovation

    Moderator: Professor Lisa Jackson Pulver, Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Indigenous Strategy & Services.
