Thursday, 08 Sep 2016

Last night, Alex McCauley, CEO of StartupAus, kicked off his first event of the September EdXN series, here in Melbourne.

Alex’s presentation on ‘The Crossroads report’ was streamed across Australia and 150 people congregated at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) to see him speak.

Alex delivered an insightful presentation covering the emerging startup ecosystem and the 2016 Crossroads report which is due to be released in the coming months.

Once Alex’s presentation concluded, ACS Victoria Chair Craig Horne and Chair of the Recognition & Fellows Committee Ian wells, presented to the audience three new ACS Victoria Fellows, all which have made a distinguished contribution to increasing the participation of women and students in ICT. Dr Jo Coldwell-Neilson, Dr Annemieke Craig and Dr Catherine Lang had all initially sat down together to fill in their Fellows applications, and last night, together they were all there to celebrate receiving the highest level of membership at ACS.

ACS Victoria would like to congratulate and welcome Jo, Annemieke and Catherine on becoming the latest Victorian Fellows.
