Class of 2017 alumnus Marcus Manduci has been named as a national finalist in the Australian Financial Review’s Top 100 Future Leaders competition 2022 (Ernst & Young Innovation Award). This competition finds the most promising future leaders graduating from Australian Universities. Marcus was also selected for this honour in 2020. In recognition of his hard work and business acumen Marcus has also been awarded several industry scholarships this year:
In Marcus’s own words: “As an aspiring venture capitalist, my passion for leadership has stemmed from an innate desire to be at the forefront of the Australian startup scene. The expertise I have gained through Co-Founding a student society called COMM-STEM coupled with my experiences interning at Blackbird Ventures has allowed me to refine my leadership skills. Through my relentless drive and determination, I hope to make a long-lasting tangible impact in the startup scene by fostering a sense of innovation, entrepreneurship and ambition.”
Marcus has told us that he would not have gotten where he is today if not for his thirteen years at Arden.
Well done, Marcus! We are excited to see where else your skills and hard work will take you.
