Innovation Bay is a unique network, that brings together extraordinary people passionate about innovation, entrepreneurship and technology. It has been running successfully in Sydney over the last 10 years, helping raise over $10m in seed investments. Go Capital founders Derek Gerrard and Geoff Pritchard are launching Innovation Bay in Perth in 2015 and are looking to replicate the same success here.
Innovation Bay brings together Entrepreneurs, Angel Investors and Business Leaders through a series of speaker breakfasts, focus dinners and the exclusive Angel Dinners. At the Angel Dinners, entrepreneurs are invited to submit their best ideas in a 90 second video pitch. The three videos that receive the highest votes from our investors are then invited to pitch for funding in front of a select group of angel investors at our next dinner.
Deloitte and Applabs have joined as the founding sponsors to help kick off this great initiative and the events will be kicking off from March 2015.
Deloitte R&D leader – WA, Ron van Beek said innovation and entrepreneurial spirit is essential for business growth and will continue to play a vital role in shaping the WA economy.
“Deloitte has a deep commitment to design thinking, innovation and celebrating the power of new ideas, which is why we are delighted to partner with Innovation Bay” said Mr van Beek.
