Entering a recession can put innovation on the back burner, even for organisations where R&D is their core business.
While some are making the shift from survival to recovery and looking to grow in the new financial year, many businesses are adjusting to the economic reality of a smaller bottom line. That means steady cash flow is critical to keeping innovation efforts, product development and R&D on track.
The webinar played host to discussions around how Quantify and other Australian businesses are doubling down on financing, cash flow, core capabilities, product development and R&D.
SmartCompany startups and technology editor Stephanie Palmer-Derrien hosted the webinar and was joined by Quantify’s own Brett Savill, Radium Capital CEO Cameron Owens, Recce Pharmaceuticals Executive Director James Graham, The Startup Shop Founder Amit Shah, and Meerkats Chief Strategy Officer Melanie Wiese.
