Invitation to the
Artesian & KPMG Australia
Early-Stage Innovation Briefing
The briefing will include the 1st quarterly update for investors in the Artesian Australian Venture Capital Fund (AFOF) 
The money is flowing - corporations are actively looking to engage, invest, partner and just learn from the start-up community. Why? Because they know that if they don't innovate... they'll soon be disrupted.

Yet has strategic value been fully realised from the start-up ecosystem? How can corporations and start-ups collaborate better to accelerate investment and product development?

KPMG Australia and Artesian will bring together successful start-ups, the corporations who are investing, the incubators and accelerators who help make it happen, to discuss the efficiencies and opportunities in the system as well as its pitfalls and challenges. They will focus on:
  • Why is corporate venturing the future of venture capital?
  • What are start-ups looking for from corporate investors other than capital?
  • What are the alternative forms of engagement corporates can undertake with the start-up community / across sectors /and stage in the cycle?
  • Do corporates just want the next big idea or is this about tapping into a dynamic and innovative culture?
To attend please RSVP along with any dietary requirements by 3 March 2015 using the buttons on the right hand side of this invitation.

I look forward to seeing you.
