About the course

Develop the key knowledge and skills to start Angel Investing

Angel investing has become an integral part of the Australian funding ecosystem and is a significant source of economic development and job growth. In fact, despite the effects of the global pandemic, a record US$944.7 million of capital has been invested into Australian startups in 2020.

Australia is now one of the fastest growing startup ecosystems globally, which presents many amazing opportunities for early investors who possess the knowledge to find, evaluate and close deals. Today, 52 companies founded by Australians since 2011 are worth more than $100 million. Six are worth more than $1 billion (Airwallex, Canva, Safety Culture, Zoox, Culture Amp and 10X Genomics) and 14 in excess of $500 million. These companies alone represent a combined enterprise value of more than $30 billion and the creation of 10,000 new jobs. These new jobs will help stimulate Australia’s recovery from the global pandemic.
