4th FIRN PhD Symposium

was held on Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 November 2021


The 4th FIRN PhD symposium was held online on 22-23 November 2021. Seventeen PhD students presented a wide range of papers over the two days, and we observed a high level of presentations from all students involved. The students benefited from high quality feedback from our discussants who generously gave their time to make the event a valuable experience. 

We are pleased to announce the following awards from the symposium:

Best Presenter: Nicholas Turner, UNSW, Rush To Raise: Does Fundraising Pressure Incentivize Strategic Venture Capital Deal Pricing?
Best domestic discussant:  Jason Zein, UNSW
