Silicon Valley investment and networking forum AlwaysOn hits Australia

Heading to Australian shores this April is one of the world’s foremost Silicon Valley investment and networking community AlwaysOn.

Promising to “fuel Australian start-up growth and global investment”, the event stops in at Sydney at Doltone House on 11 and 12 April to aid innovative companies in accelerating the pace at which they connect with top investors, partners and customers in the ‘global Silicon Valley’.

This two-day assembly will pool together top executives, entrepreneurs, and venture capital investors from Australia, the United States, and other key economic regions to go forth and innovate.

AlwaysOn Australia is the only international event outside the US in the network’s nine event series, and AlwaysOn founder Tony Perkins could not be more enthusiastic that the US has identified Australia as a key market.

“With companies like Atlassian, Freelancer.com and 99designs making major ripples in the global start-up community, it is obvious that Australia is still an underutilised space for global start-up investment,” he says.

A strong team of editorial advisors from the Australian start-up and venture worlds including Niki Scevak of Blackbird Ventures, Phaedon Stough of Mitchel Lake and Innovation Bay, Gerd Schenkel of Telstra Digital and Phil Morele of Pollenizer are among the key speakers at the event.
