Lunchtime talk and networking, as part of the MPLS Impact through Enterprise Programme, with Oxford's own Dr Susan Graham, sharing the highs and lows of her inspiring journey through the world of start-ups at the same time as successfully completing her DPhil at the IBME in 2015.
Australian engineer and medical scientist Dr Susan Graham will be sharing the highs and lows of her inspiring journey through the world of start-ups at the same time as successfully completing her DPhil at the IBME in 2015. After rowing for Wolfson College at Oxford she co-founded ‘Feather & Square’, a smartphone rowing app company, followed by ‘Peared’, a high tech lifestyle company for the elderly. Most recently she has co-founded BioCarbon Engineering which made it to the finals of a $1M Drones 4 Good competition, where they demonstrated their automated aerial planting system. What is it like to be a female Entrepreneur? What has she learned along the way? How did she manage her PhD studies, her ventures and social life? Did she always (or ever) want to be an entrepreneur, and what does entrepreneurship mean to her? There will be opportunities to ask questions and also to network over lunch at the end of the session.
