Melbourne Angels supports Geelong ICT $50,000 IT Invention Test

Melbourne Angels, as Victoria’s only Angel Investor group, is an active supporter of a range of entrepreneurial initiatives in Victoria.

The $50,000 IT Invention Test is a national investment pitching competition founded by ICT Geelong. Melbourne Angels provided active support with its members delivering a number of workshops in the early rounds of the competition and judging each round of the competition.

Melbourne Angels President and Founder, Jordan Green, was a keynote speaker at the Technology Entrepreneurship Forum that preceded the final pitches and judging in Geelong on October 28th, 2011. The following week Jordan teamed with Jerry Engel from the Haas School of Business at Berkeley University in California to  deliver an entrepreneur boot-camp for finalists and other contestants in the Invention Test. Melbourne Angels member Maurice Grasso was also on the faculty of the boot-camp.

This active involvement by Melbourne Angels reflects the commitment of the group to supporting the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Victoria and the active interest of the group to invest in promising start-up ventures across a broad range of sectors. The standard of the finalists was very high and the group anticipates investing in at least one of those companies in the coming months.
