About this event

After completing training as an electronic engineer in Adelaide in 1980, Doug travelled overseas where his first proper business in the UK involved interviewing rock stars such as the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Talking Heads, Sting, Pink Floyd etc so he has plenty of interesting music business stories to tell.   Doug enjoyed founding, growing, managing and selling several businesses in the UK, Europe and SE Asia in media, distribution, and content and then relocated back to Australia in 1995.   After some time in Melbourne running a software and services business that had acquired his previous web software operation, Doug returned to Adelaide in 2003 and saw life from the other side, spending the best part of six years as an Investment Manager at a seed/early stage technology investment fund. He also founded a business in organics, acquired a boutique tourism business, and made several angel investments (not all of them successful!).   Now Doug loves filling his days working with innovative companies.  As a Case Manager with Commercialisation Australia, Doug is motivated by helping businesses bring new products to the market and providing advice so they don’t make many of the mistakes Doug has made!   Besides qualifications in electronic engineering, finance, and venture capital, Doug is also a Graduate Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
