Sydney MBA Expo Power Panel Announced

As part of the 2022 MBA Expo hosted by MBA News on Wednesday 14 September, we’re happy to announce that we will be joined by two entrepreneurs and MBA graduates to give us their take on whether an MBA is the key to entrepreneurial success.

Abodely Founder, Tom Coe and Aerologix Co-Founder and COO Rakesh Routhu, are both MBA graduates from The Australian Graduate School of Management (AGSM) at UNSW, and will take part in the Expo’s Power Panel discussion at 1:15pm.

Discover why they thought an MBA was the right qualification for their careers, the value of the MBA to their entrepreneurial success and the advice they have for other professionals or entrepreneurs considering adding an MBA to their credentials.

As the Founder of Abodely, Tom is currently tackling the world’s largest asset class, residential property, by launching a social community for homes. With a background working for various startups in Hong Kong, London and Sydney as a C-suite executive, Tom’s experience in finance and strategy were boosted by completing an Executive MBA in 2020.

Rakesh Routhu is on a mission to connect Aerologix clients looking for on-demand drone data with drone pilots to meet their needs. Rakesh has a strong background in drone tech startups, previously co-founding R2 Robotronics which won numerous awards including Top 8 at the World Startup Expo.
