Explorer Program 2022

Angel investors are the lifeblood of a healthy startup ecosystem.

We launched the Explorer Program as our way of addressing the worrying trend of declining angel and seed-stage investment in Australia and New Zealand and to encourage more diverse and underrepresented groups to invest in startups.

Explorers receive free angel investing education and networks, access to our internal Investment Committee meetings, and funds to invest.

As the startup community continues to grow and mature, we want to help the many experienced founders and early employees back the next generation as investors and advisors.

We also want to empower more diverse and underrepresented groups of talented people who are actively contributing to the success of our sector to become angel investors for the first time and benefit from our sector’s wealth creation potential.

We want to keep doing everything we can to foster an active, vibrant and world-class angel investment community in Australia and New Zealand.
