Peter Le Lievre graduated from UTS over two decades ago with a degree in industrial design and has been successful in commercialising Australian technology ever since. Peter is currently based in Silicon Valley.
My first job out of university was to build a heart pump for a North Shore surgeon and that came out of a patent we developed for a dishwasher.
Since joining the workforce Peter has been named on 21 patents and started a handful of companies, as well as being involved in venture capitalism and raising funds to commercialise new technologies.
