STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and math) students spend significant time developing cutting-edge technology as part of their studies. These ‘deep tech’ innovations, years in the making, are often of high commercial value but are routinely lost to the marketplace due to poor academic-industry links in Australia and a lack of native high-tech industry. This website presents 7-module video series, an entrepreneurship training program for women focused on developing STEM students with entrepreneurial mindsets and skillsets. The program consists of free videos delivered through an online platform as part of the UTS Techcelator program that the Kirby Foundation supports.
