Where to pitch your business idea in Australia?


Number of available investors and angels who are interested putting their cash into a new venture is not as many as other major entrepreneurial countries like United stated and UK. But it doesn't mean we are really behind considering less population and density here.

We all know famous TV shows like Shark Tank and so on, but pitching for investment is not only limited to those kind of commercial programmes. In this list you can find some of the other options if you are looking for a investor.

1- Dolphin Tank: a series started recently and mainly focus on female entrepreneurs. It is kind of a international event however it has been launched for the first time in Australia in Sydney.
