CoSec’s dedicated R&D Advisory Services are overseen by the eagle eyes of Anne-Marie Perret, a highly regarded R&D funding specialist. Over a stellar career, Anne-Marie has overseen R&D services for PwC and Ernst & Young and helped dozens of companies – from tech start-ups to major multinationals – to access millions of dollars in government grants and incentives. Anne-Marie worked in Hong Kong before returning to her native Canberra, where she has become one of the city’s ‘go to’ advisors in the specialist realm of R&D funding.
Today, her expertise and connections provide CoSec clients with a high level of access to Australia's generous R&D funding incentives, as well as practical governance advice and project prioritisation services. Anne-Marie sits on the Advisory Board of the Renewable Energy Innovation Fund and the ACT Council of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and is Vice President of the ACT Division of the Heart Foundation. She is also closely involved in a number of initiatives to promote technological innovation in the ACT – as a Director of the Digital Canberra Challenge Program, a long-time Member of the Canberra Business Chamber Innovation Taskforce, and current Chairman of the innovation-focused investment forum, Capital Angels.
