Australia’s strong competitive position in the global economy has attracted many foreign direct investors in the past years. The stable regulatory environment, the highly skilled and multi-lingual workforce and the culture of innovation have opened business opportunities that have led to 21 years of growth and economic resilience. For that reason Australia continues to be increasingly attractive in 2013 to venture capitalists and investors, mainly from US, UK, Japan, the Netherlands and Switzerland. Hundreds of them have used the services of Angel Investment Network, the online platform, to find entrepreneurs who are seeking business start-up funding or raising capital for existing business. The site is free to use for investors, who can review the proposals, submitted by the entrepreneurs and contact those, whose projects look attractive to invest in.
More than 36 per cent of Australia’s GDP come from foreign direct investment. Its strategic geographic location means that it is well placed to capitalise on growth in China, India and the Asia-Pacific region. Australia’s economy continues to be one of the most healthy ones in the world, with current continuing to increase in value against the traditional currency strong holds such as the Dollar and Yen. The traditional industries, in which angel investor groups provide capital for include agribusiness, technology and mining, which are among the top export industries of Australia.
Entrepreneurs looking for business financing can register on the Angel Investment Network site and submit a proposal, including details of the company, the capital required the stage of the project and the role of the investor. Some business angels might take on a broader role in the business they are investing in by providing strategic advice, which is of great importance for start-up companies that need to attract new clients. Many of the Australian entrepreneurs are young start-up company owners, so the opportunity that Angel Investment Network provides them with is one of great value to get the support they need and some business experience. Important to mention is that when looking for investors, business owners need to make sure they can support them not only financially, but also with their knowledge, experience and contacts.
Members of Angel Investment Network come from all over the world, so both parties need to make sure any cultural differences won’t affect their business relation and they will get along.
