Event description

Description

Angel 100 – To Angel fund 100 companies in Queensland within 2 years.

The average (known) Angel Investment deal in Queensland (numbers are consistent with Victoria) currently represents ~$150,000 private equity investment.

100 x $150,000 = $15M investment into young Queensland companies.

  • If matched with existing Queensland Government programs, this potentially represents a $30M investment in Queensland companies.
  • Using the current Brisbane Angels leverage of 4:1, this could reflect a total of $120M investment into emerging Queensland companies within 2 years.
  • It is estimated this figure could contribute more than 5,000 new jobs for Queensland using published US Treasury statistics.
  • If marketed correctly it will provide an opportunity to stimulate interstate migration to Queensland to secure early-stage funding.

To achieve this goal, Queensland needs significantly more active Angel Investors and companies that are ready for investment. Significant investment is already being made by the Queensland Government into the innovation ecosystem to promote entrepreneurial activity.

At present Brisbane Angels is the longest operating and largest Angel Investment group in Queensland with 85 members. Brisbane Angels established in 2007 has invested more than $12M over the past 5 years with 16 new rounds done already during the 2017 calendar year to date.

While there is much anecdotal indicators saying there are “plenty of Angel Investors out there”, there is no tangible evidence for this other than through formalised groups that are measurable and which collect data.

Angel Loop is undertaking the activities and associated research required to build the Angel Investment community, as well as establish the investment quality standard required to facilitate the willingness of existing and potential Angel Investors to “put their hands in their pockets” and invest in commercial opportunities.
