Angel Investment Fellowship

Are you a Curtin University PhD student or postdoctoral researcher?

We’re giving you the opportunity to apply research vigour to investment deals!

Innovation Central Perth has partnered with Perth Angels and South West Angels to connect early career researchers with a community of start-up investors in Western Australia. Commencing in 2021, the Angel Investment Fellowship program will connect PhD students and postdoctoral researchers with WA networks looking to invest in emerging entrepreneurs, founders and business owners.

This Fellowship program will give early career researchers the opportunity to attend meetings where budding entrepreneurs pitch their ideas. Fellows will be able to apply their technical expertise, to help angel investors determine whether the proposals are viable and competitive. Fellows will conduct research and offer their findings to potential investors, which can be used in assessing business plans and concepts. Participants will receive a $500 incentive to acknowledge and support their efforts.

If you would like to bolster your experience and work directly alongside Perth Angels and South West Angels investors this is the perfect opportunity for you!
