Cameron Turner

Cameron Turner has spent well over 20 years investigating problems, finding solutions, and implementing innovation and commercialisation methods to turn ideas into long-term competitive advantages. “The world doesn’t need more ideas, it needs better execution of ideas that solve real problems thus creating value. That is what I teach and research”. 

University of Queensland researchers devised a method to shield probiotics from the acidity of the digestive system, enabling them to reach the gut, where they are most beneficial. The innovation, which was commercialised as ProGel, was leveraged by entrepreneur Cameron Turner to develop PERKii, a probiotic drink that is currently available in Australia and New Zealand.

Over the last three years, the company’s revenue has increased from $1.1 million in the 2018-19 fiscal year to $3.2 million in 2020-21.
