CMU Australia has been invited to speak at the Innovation in the City's dinner series to discuss about CMU-A's latest innovation in the entrepreneurial scene - Piranhas' Feast.

The Concept

In the traditional Shark Tank, small fish enter in the hope of securing a rare offer of support. That model has been used to drive investment into start-up businesses. Chances of collaboration are relatively low.

At CMU Australia, the waters in the tank are different and ones that are conducive to a special school of fish. CMU Australia has started the ‘Piranhas’ Feast’ because opportunities are created differently. The ‘university of piranhas’ are very hungry for opportunities, big opportunities. With world class skills, a passion to succeed and the resilience to overcome challenges, students want to feast on big opportunities.

The Speakers

Prof. Danura Miriyagalla, PhD is Deputy Head and Professor of Practice at CMU-A.
