Event description

Description

They say the best startup investment deals are only open to the privileged, those in the know. Were you offered Atlassian shares when they IPO'd?

Now, crowd funding for reward ($50 for the t-shirt, not the end product) has been around for a while. We all know KickStarter and some of the horror stories like the Oculus t-shirt saga.

Crowd funding for equity is newer and still only available to the 2,000 or so sophisticated investors in Australia.

Israel has some mature platforms such as http://ourcrowd.com (who have presented to the NSIN at Workinc previously) and https://www.iangels.co. The US has many more and Australia has https://www.venturecrowd.com.au.

So now the Australian government is looking at all of this seriously with new legislation.

Let’s find out where we’re headed with 'group buying' in the startup world...

OUR AMAZING SPEAKER is Jill Storey.

Jill is the CEO of ReadyFundGo, Australia’s reward based crowdfunding platform for business. She has been involved with crowdfunding for 5 years, first setting up a donation based platform (Inspire a Star) in the UK in 2012.

She is a director of the Crowdfunding Institute of Australia and is passionate about helping business start-ups and scale-ups.

Jill has previously been a partner with Deloitte and KPMG in the UK, Australia and Hong Kong.

We look forward to her insights on this democratisation of investment!
