NewLedge’s unique Business, Entrepreneurship and STEM Innovation training program equips you with critical business skills to set you up for success across the STEM spectrum, from product, sales & support, testing or quality control to R&D and marketing.
Learn with NewLedge®, and you will gain unique business, tech and STEM innovation skills that will help you build something that’s completely your own – as an employee or entrepreneur.
We call this intrapreneurship: a STEM professional with an entrepreneurial mindset who leads and succeeds with innovation within or outside an organisation.
This course is for anyone with a background in STEM who is looking to build a profitable, future-proof career that doesn’t leave you stuck doing one thing.
Our course contains recorded videos, live masterclasses and case studies from high-growth companies, along with assessments and project work.
NewLedge® is spearheaded by Dr. Lucas Merlo, a mentor, researcher, teacher, founder and venture capital advisor who holds an MBA and PhD (from CSIRO and RMIT). The courses within the program are designed and taught by Lucas as a passionate industry expert and company founder.
The NewLedge® approach to innovation rests on a methodology framed around 12 Impactors or Innovation Impact Factors: the specific elements that affect STEM innovation.
It is the FIRST and ONLY research-validated innovation-implementation framework in Australia, validated by the CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) and tested on 15 high-performing STEM companies, who have grown and transformed different aspects of their businesses, from product to market.
