In the Know is an opportunity for existing and aspiring entrepreneurs, business founders, people running businesses, policymakers and the public who have an interest in learning from practitioners about the secrets of their success.

At a time when our research institutions are being asked to do more to translate their research, Professor Darren Kelly is a rarity, having successfully spun-out research from the University of Melbourne (Fibrotech Therapeutics) that was subsequently acquired by overseas interests and he is back to repeat the success with a second university spin-out venture, OccuRx. What can we learn from his experience that might guide other researchers to follow his lead? What factors have been important in his success? Does he have a third spin-out opportunity in mind? The answers to these and more questions will be revealed during this interview format event.
