Further to our exciting new partnership with Atomic Sky, we are supporting Perth Angels. Here’s the detail in a recent Press Release.
Local angel investor group, Perth Angels (NFP) fly high with new Partners, Liberty, a leading provider of flexible workspace solutions, and innovation experts, Atomic Sky. The three organisations have joined forces to raise the bar on angel investment in Western Australia. Collectively they will build investor knowledge, skills and practices through Perth Angels’ programs, such as the Angel Investing Series, which seeks to encourage investment in new economy technologies.
The first joint event, ‘Investing in MedTech’, a half-day Masterclass comprising industry leaders and co-presented by Accelerating Australia, is to take place at Liberty on August 15.
Atomic Sky is the Community and Content Partner for Liberty, an Australian owned business with a unique value proposition of ‘space and service’. Jamie Vine, Liberty CEO, said, “
Beyond our world class workspace and exceptional customer service we want to add value by supporting business growth. Liberty is thrilled to be a part of this exciting partnership. One that will provide incubation, innovation and, now with Perth Angels investment support. ‘Investing in MedTech’ is only the first of many exciting events we'll co-host with Perth Angels and Atomic Sky."
The ‘Investing in MedTech’ event forms part of the New Economy Technology Stream, and is to take place at Liberty on August 15 with a half-day masterclass co-presented by Accelerating Australia. The event brings together industry leaders and practitioners to provide insights on key issues, considerations and best practice for investing in ventures and new opportunities in Medical Technologies (MedTech) and Life Sciences. Speakers and panellists will include some of Perth’s finest such as Richard Hopkins, Managing Director and CEO of Zelda Therapeutics, Paul Andersen, Founder, Managing Director and CEO of OrthoCell, and Nobel Prize Laureate and Professor of Clinical Microbiology at the University of Western Australia, Barry Marshall.
Chair of Industry Development for Perth Angels, Greg Riebe said “Indeed the lines between medicine and technology is redefining traditional MedTech and fundamentally altering business models.” As the pace of change accelerates around the globe in our societies, economies and industries, advances in medical technologies are being demanded to respond to these changes as well as creating new opportunities for investment. Mr Riebe says the partnership will see angel investing stay relevant and local investors will get the insights needed to continue actively investing in Perth-based businesses. Mr Riebe said, “The new economy technologies stream is specifically designed to share and develop the skills and practices of angel investing in early-stage high-growth ventures in a variety of areas. Partnering with Liberty and Atomic Sky means that we can deliver our program in a professional, innovative and community led environment where businesses can accelerate their potential”.
