As the Australian start-up scene takes off, entrepreneurial-friendly capital markets are evolving with realistic, strategic entrepreneurs best positioned to take advantage of the rapidly blossoming opportunities, according to start-up investor and adviser Jon Tanner.
Tanner is the founder of the MitchelLake Group, a recruitment and investment company that has worked with leading start-ups including The Iconic, Yammer, 99designs, Groupon as well as innovation groups such as NICTA.
“I feel there are lots of great ideas right now, and a lot more interest in this sector than there was five years ago. Entrepreneurs are more aware of the opportunities here and overseas, and there are more doors open to Australian founders,” Tanner says.
