Start-Up Nation Networking Event

Macquarie Business School invites you to join the first Networking Event at Macquarie University City Campus.

Come and meet the course directors, network with your peers, and hear from guest speaker Yanir Yakutiel (CEO of Lumi). All our post experience students in the Master of Business Administration, Global Master of Business Administration and Master of Applied Finance programs are invited. The event will focus on technology and innovation in Israel, “The Start-up Nation” and it is a wonderful opportunity to hear from our guest speaker and network with peers, alumni and teachers.

The event will begin with an address by the new MBA director, Professor Debbie Haski-Leventhal followed by our guest speaker Yanir Yakutiel, Founder and CEO of Lumi. Yanir began Lumi with one major goal in mind: to help Australian small businesses flourish by offering fast, flexible and fully transparent loans and will share tips for career development and business entrepreneurship. Yanir, who is a former Israeli, will also explore why Israel has the highest number of start-ups and what a nation does to support innovation and technological advancement.

There will also be an opportunity to hear about scholarship opportunities to study part of the MBA in Israel. The event will conclude with networking opportunities, canapes and light refreshments.
