Gold Coast Investment Evening Ignites Interest in Early Stage Gold Coast Startups

Wednesday 1st December saw investment groups 42 Ventures, Gold Coast Angels and  Angel Loop come together for the Gold Coast Investment Evening, an event  organised by the  Gold Coast Innovation Hub to introduce existing and prospective new angel investors to investment ready,  early stage startups.

With the Gold Coast tech and innovation ecosystem  rapidly reaching new stages of maturity it is a great time  to explore   early stage innovative companies as a way to diversify a traditional property or stock portfolio.

The event was designed to provide an informative and entertaining overview of the  early stage investment landscape  as well as a taste of the regular angel meetings that will be hosted on a bi-monthly basis  throughout 2022 with 2 pitches from  startups that are currently raising capital for their businesses.

Attendees  were   entertained with a  keynote presentation from Danny Maher, Chairman of 42 Ventures  around his business journey including the recent  acquisition  of the  technology company he founded on the Gold Coast, Opmantek.

The first pitch for the evening was from Lindy Chen, founder of  Frethan  ,  the first fully automated platform that  delivers an end-to-end importing management solution for supplier assurance and quality control using artificial intelligence and proven blockchain technology.

The second pitch was from  Monarc  Global  a travel tech company changing the way  charter operators price and charge for aircraft and making private aircraft more accessible for everyone.

The evening concluded with networking between  investors and founders that continued well into the night,  a great indication that the regular events  next year will play host to an active and engaging group  of new and existing angel investors.

Gold Coast Angels are currently taking expressions of interest from individuals  that would like to become a member for the 2022 year.  Memberships are $89 per annum and include access to the bi-monthly pitch events and a reciprocal  networking membership to the GC Hub for further community engagement and event access.  Please complete the form below to register:
