Visionary biophysicist Dr Gary Ellem is a futurist in the true sense of the word. For more than a decade Gary has been an advocate at the state and local level for a sustainable and accessible future through electric vehicles as a means of futureproofing our economy and solving gridlock.

Recently Gary has turned his attention to the future of virtual education and collaboration after developing a commercialisation strategy for a Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) spin-out, iSee - an Australian built video collaboration solution that enables many-to-many crowd collaboration, merging video conferencing with interactive, virtual spaces. It utilises a patented bandwidth management system which allows users to connect from anywhere with large numbers of people using only laptops and a fixed or mobile internet connection.

iSee had its origins in the Smart Services CRC, a Federal Government program for research and development that supports innovation in Australia’s services economy. One key focus was improving the ability for people to learn, create and develop trusted networks both nationally and internationally. In 2014 that iSee was founded to bring the groundbreaking technology developed in the Smart Services CRC to the world and is now being rolled out commercially within a range of organisations.

Join Graeme and Gary in person at DSA-18 Hub or via live webstream at Three76 Hub to hear the iSee story and how the team are revolutionising the future of virtual meeting spaces and online education.

About Startup Stories

Startup Stories takes place every Thursday from 1 pm at the University of Newcastle's coworking spaces Three76 Hub (Newcastle) and DSA-18 Hub (Williamtown)*. Startup founders talk candidly about their experience as an entrepreneur and business owner – the highs, the lows, the wins, the mistakes, the whole enchilada. Startup Stories provides real-life examples of the different stages of the startup journey, creating a forum for startups to share and learn but also for the community to see tangible evidence of entrepreneurship making a difference in our region. #i2nStartupStories

*One space hosts the startup founder speaker while the other hosts a live web stream of the talk.
