We're launching a new Victorian Angel Club

Innovation Bay wants to increase angel investing into Victorian startups.
Early stage investment into startups has been declining in Australia over recent years. According to LaunchVic, angel investment in Victoria collapsed from $200m in 2017 to $90m in 2018. We want to change that. We have been helping founders raise seed investment for over a decade. Connecting founders to angel investors, family offices and venture funds.
With support from LaunchVic, we’re establishing the Victorian Angel Club. For individuals who are passionate about investing in the most promising tech startups. The club is unique and like no other angel group in Australia. It is not a syndicate, members are under no obligation to invest. It will be open and inclusive. Our founder-friendly approach aimed at matching aligned investors and founders. Utilising our extensive network and experience of bringing people together in meaningful ways.
We will work to identify startups, filter applications, and make introductions. Provide ongoing support to enable relationships to grow and investments to occur. Encourage investors to attend events, review opportunities, invest, refer startups and new members.
