Innovation and Entrepreneurship
I am the Michale J Crouch Chair for Innovation at the University of NSW in Sydney. Previously I founded and led the Innovation and Enterprise Research Lab (The Magic Lab) in 2002-2020. The lab was a pioneer and leader in transdisciplinary research into strategic and disruptive innovations designed to transform business and society.
At UNSW I collaborate with staff, students, alumni and partners to grow entrepreneurship and accelerate innovative thinking in Australia.
Micheal Crouch was an inspiring Australian entrepreneur and business leader. He was a visionary and extraordinarily generous benefactor. In 2017 Michael Crouch was appointed Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) for eminent service to the community through philanthropic contributions to youth, cultural, medical research and health care organisations, to business in the areas of manufacturing and international trade, and as a supporter of innovation and higher education.
