Setting the context

Australia has the potential to lead the global rankings in the emerging areas of Artificial Intelligence(AI) and Blockchain given the leading registration of patents in these areas. However, Australia’s rate of start-up pass-through has resulted in an “innovation drain” driving Australian talent and ideas overseas.

Australia’s conventional investment culture is misaligned to the start-ups’ potential which has driven Australian ideas and skills off-shore. Now is the opportunity to champion diversification of Australian wealth into the venture capital stream.

There is an opportunity to create a best-of-class, start-up ecosystem in Melbourne similar to comparable emerging networks overseas (e.g. Stockholm & Tel Aviv) capitalising on Australia’s renowned pioneering spirit.

This can be achieved by:

  • Transforming Australia’s investment culture, which has, thus far, resisted the attraction of diversifying wealth through start-up investment;
  • Leveraging the lifestyle attractions of Melbourne (regularly named “the world’s most liveable city”) to attract capital and talent into Australia’s ecosystem in a reverse brain drain;
  • Optimising the investment framework using a fund-through model on the back of interconnected clusters of capital, talent and industry expertise
