Government Support, the third workshop of our early stage investment series co-hosted with AANZ.  This is a half day morning event packed full of speakers who will highlight what channels of government support are available to you and your company as you grow.

Both a physical and virtual event, this workshop is designed for start-ups and angel investment backed companies, as well as investors who’d like to understand further what government support there is for their founders/future entrepreneurs. This workshop also provides valuable networking opportunities after the presentations.
