An Interview: Leadership in a 
Post Pandemic Landscape
"We're not here to turn researchers into entrepreneurs – we are here to essentially let the researcher understand what it is that the commercial pathway might be and then participate however they like."

Anthony Francis – Executive Director
The Office of Technology Management
Anthony Francis has spent the last 25 years deeply engaged with researchers, commercial partners and investors, creating new ways to achieve success. Because it is often administrative issues that slow innovation and frustrate inventors and partners alike, Anthony excels at cutting through “red tape” and confusion about business models by intervening personally to find solutions that benefit all stakeholders.

He sat down with us from his home in Australia where he has quarantined with his family.
