INCUBATE Director, James Alexander, explains that not all students or graduates want to go into a graduate program when they finish university and part of INCUBATE’s success has been based on this realisation. “Starting your own or helping another young entrepreneur build a successful business can create so much value for our economy. We’re encouraging young entrepreneurs to start new global businesses here, in Australia.”
In Australia alone, there are currently 3 million people above the age of 65 and each year 1 in 3 of these people fall, which results in an injury. Current systems such as a panic button attempt to solve this issue but have problems – they are relatively conspicuous, can be forgotten and left behind and in some situations, they can’t be utilised properly
