Connecting startups to capital and resources

15 August 2019

Investor Connect 2019

Meet with leading VCs & Angels
15 August, 2019

A thriving startup ecosystem requires great founders building world class products and for investors to find and back these promising companies.

However, it can be difficult for founders to take their focus away from their product/customers and devote time in building relationships with potential investors. This is where our Investor Connect event comes in!

We help bridge the gap between startups and investors by focusing on dismantling the barriers between the two parties.


Unlike traditional demo days or pitch events, we curate the experience by matching our investors with 2-3 startups that meet their verticals and stage of interest.


Alongside the companies that the investors are matched with, they have another 50+ companies to meet in the room and the startups have access to 20 of the leading VCs and angel investors all at a single event (for free!).

Our belief is that through initiatives like this, we can help promote the vibrant and growing ecosystem that Australia has to offer the world. More importantly, we can close the loop, build connections with ease and encourage a significant part of the Australian startup industry to flourish.
