This is a group started to bring entrepreneurs and private investors together. Entrepreneurs can present their business ideas to private investors who can either choose to invest or decline. We will keep business start-up finance requirements between $10k and $100k for both investors and business entrepreneurs.
Definitely join if you think you have a great business idea but don't have access to the necessary finance to get it off the ground. There may be someone in the group that can help you out in some way. I think the key to getting an investor to back your idea....is just make sure you can answer all the questions they direct to you. So do your homework in that regard and come well prepared.
Make sure you have a very well layed out business plan that includes a detailed marketing plan and financial projections based on reality. Investors don't want their time wasted so come prepared. Investors looking for a place to invest should join also, you never know where the next big idea is going to come from. It could come from a member of a group just like this.
I know a young guy from Perth WA, he's only 28 today but he started up one of these meet-up groups in 2011. His company now does over $50M a year. When we get a few members on board both investors and entrepreneurs, we will organise a format that entrepreneurs can apply for to get their business ideas or other projects presented for financial backing.
To your success & aspirations
