With every VC Catalyst we welcome a new group of extraordinary investors and we are always blown away by their enthusiasm and dedication to impactful investment. This year’s cohort was no exception. From med-tech to dairy farms, crowdfunding platforms to cosmetic entrepreneurs and family office directors – this group had it all. In total over 18 industries were represented, with job titles and experience spanning from founders to general managers, investment directors and everything in between. We put them through their paces over three weeks of online sprints, events, panels, presentations and Demo Day. And by the end, it was clear just how bright the future is for Australia’s early-stage startups.
Along with our investor participants, VC Catalyst brings together an exceptional group of local and international instructors, speakers and mentors. The knowledge shared from the entire group – both participants and speakers – was, as always, awe-inspiring. Here’s just a taste:
Rachael Neumann, Lead Facilitator
Colin McLeod, Facilitator and Lead Academic
Pedram Mokrian, International Guest Instructor
Kylie Frazer, Speaker
We were blown away by the amazing work of our investor cohort and can’t wait to see the impact they have on Australia’s economic future. Want to hear more about VC Catalyst? Connect with our Program Director, Andrew ‘Midsy’ Middleton.
