Risky business: start ups, STEMs and innovation
Play • 32 min

Australia has a proud history of being a “nation of innovation”: we created Wifi, the black box flight recorder… the Hills Hoist.

 Nowadays, a technology and innovation slowdown appears to be making us more averse to risk. How did we get here? And how do we reignite the spark of innovation?

 We meet two people who are using their experiences to encourage Australians to think differently, back themselves, and embrace the risk of a bold business idea.

 Usman Iftikhar, who graduated with a masters in engineering but couldn’t catch a break, so used his time stacking shelves to hatch an idea.

Sarah Moran, whose experience of typing code into school room computers sparked a love of technology that she’s passing on to a new generation of girls.

 The Few Who Do with CGU Insuance. Two hosts, one problem, two possibilities.

Featured Guests:

Usman Iftikhar, Co-Founder and CEO of Catalysr

Sarah Moran, CEO of Girl Geek Academy
