Biography/ Background

At 16, Noel Lindsay dropped out of school to start his first business which initially succeeded but then failed. Learning from this failure prompted him to complete his high school education of an evening while working during the day and then enter University. After completing his PhD in Commerce at The University of Queensland, Noel co-founded, developed, and harvested successful businesses in Australia, South Africa, and Malaysia. He also worked in the corporate insolvency field in the areas of company liquidations and receiverships and then in private equity as a Director of a $22 million venture capital fund that invested $1m-$3m in growth-oriented entrepreneurial ventures. As Professor of Entrepreneurship and Commercialisation, Academic Director Singapore Operations, and Director of the Entrepreneurship, Commercialisation and Innovation Centre (ECIC) at the University of Adelaide, he leads a team that teaches and undertakes research in the areas of entrepreneurship, innovation, technology commercialisation, and project management. Noel  graduated from The University of Queensland with a BCom (Hons) and a PhD in Commerce. He is a Member of The Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia and is a Fellow of CPA Australia.  Noel holds a Public Practicing Certificate with both organisations. He also is a member of STEP - the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.

The Entrepreneurship, Commercialisation & Innovation Centre's (ECIC) Mission is to stimulate innovation through its research, teaching, and community engagement activities. Its main offices are located in the Engineering South Building on the University of Adelaide's North Terrace campus.
