Services Provided

gemaker was engaged by the Innovation & Commercial Research Team at UOW to examine and report on the commercial feasibility of knowledge management software developed as an outcome of a significant Australian Research Council (ARC) linkage project.

I found that the gemaker team have an approach to commercialisation and the gathering of market intelligence that is evidence based, rigorous and follows a logical methodology. I also found working with Athena from the gemaker team personally rewarding, she has a natural propensity to mentor and as such provided me with assistance and advice that has helped me to increase my professional profile.
