The stunning Shelter Brewery in Busselton hosted the Bayside Investor Networking Session yesterday commencing with a panel discussion with Tracie Clark from Perth Angels and Scale Investors, and Rob Davis from Enginuity and South West Angels, offering valuable insights into their angel investment experiences. Duncan Anderson on behalf of South West Angels presented a concept for a statewide regional investor network.
The session was supported by New Industries WA (Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation) and Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) as part of a Groundswell grant.
After networking, the South West Angels Pitch event commenced with three very different and innovative businesses pitching their emerging technologies last week to a room full of private investors, government organisations and fellow business owners. Each pitch generated interesting questions and discussions, with valuable connections made during the post-pitch networking.
