Over the past seven years, Mr. Miller has worked in the field of disruptive innovation, with a specific focus on education and community building technology. In 2015, he became involved in the medical cannabis space due to his passion for the medicine and belief in innovation stimulating its growth. In 2016, he founded BuddingTech, Australia’s first medical cannabis innovation coordination program, developing networks and collaborations, including the facilitation and management of three student research projects on medical cannabis in conjunction with the University of Sydney’s Business School and MGC Pharmaceuticals, producing Australia’s first Medical Cannabis White Paper. Since working with the University of Sydney, Mr. Miller has engaged with a number of universities in Australia, forming a strategic collaborative relationship for a wide aperture of projects. With strong connections in the startup ecosystem and the medical cannabis industry, Adam Miller recently hosted Australia’s first medical cannabis innovation event ‘Seedlings’.
In addition, he has worked to create a unifying voice for the medical cannabis industry in Australia through the founding of the Medical Cannabis Council. As Australia’s first national medical cannabis industry body, the council facilitates a framework of best practice and supports the positioning of Australia as a world leader in research and production of safe, scientifically-backed medical cannabis products.
