On #49 I’m joined by Professor Kevin Hindle. Kevin and I met about five years ago when he asked me to present to his Masters class about innovation happening in the e-business space and on my predictions for where the big opportunities lay in the early part of the 21st century. For the record, I didn’t mention podcasting.

Kevin Hindle is Professor of Entrepreneurship at the Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne , Australia . He is a researcher, educator, management consultant and private equity investor. His variety of expertise and interests embrace many aspects of managing in conditions of uncertainty. His research, teaching, managerial and consulting work focuses on entrepreneurial business planning but includes: investment evaluation (especially in the field of venture capital), market and financial modelling, change management, organisational design, corporate strategy and management training. Applying leading-edge research to practical problems, he has initiated and developed new ventures and worked for organisations large and small, public and private, Australian and international.

We talk about entrepreneuship in Australia and what it means to be an entrepreneur, subjects Kevin knows a great deal about.
