@JCU Reperio 2016 – Innovation Pitching Competition

REPERIO 2016

Ever wanted to watch business ideas being pitched to real life investors? 

Inspired by the television series “Shark Tank”, the Innovation & Commercialisation is team proud to present “Reperio” (meaning: to learn, invent, discover in Latin), an exciting innovation pitching competition at JCU which challenges JCU research teams to take that next step and develop their research ideas into business  ideas that impact society!

The competition will involve selected teams pitching to a panel of real life investors and entrepreneurs, with a share of $10,000 up for grabs for the best ideas!

We have received tremendous interest in the competition and are still looking for ideas from JCU research teams! 

The closing date for entries is 26th August 2016.

If you are not inclined to pitch, you can still be a part of our audience too and support the JCU teams involved!
