Welcome to this fortnightly IO Private update. 

After 20 years of working in the global innovation scene, Brian has taken the initiative to launch an investor focussed platform and community, IO Private. Brian has always managed to be a step ahead and lead the innovation industry and now IO Private is all set to cater for the next generation of digital investors.

“Whilst I love catching up for coffee with my investor friends and then having coffee with the start-up entrepreneurs and then having coffee with their industry associates and then having a follow up coffee (now zoom meetings)…..well it’s just not viable anymore as everyone is just too busy to spend this time to explore the investment opportunities. That’s why we created our new IO Private Investment Showcase Platform! From the comfort of your own home, in your own time, investors can browse quality entrepreneurial opportunities from a diverse range of credible associates. That is what the next generation of investors want.” Brian states.

IO Private was spun out of a private investor network called Investors Org which was launched over seven years ago and played a major role in stimulating the Australian start-up scene. From activities such as a Silicon Valley trade mission, and hosting Silicon Valley stars to our regular Investor coffee catch ups. This new venture caters for the next generation of investors who want a private approach in exploring investment opportunities and importantly want to deal directly with the founders.

A special note of appreciation to Mark Sita who has joined IO Private and done a fantastic job in building the platform and now growing our IO Private community.

Become part of the IO Private community and enjoy the private nature of reviewing opportunities, connecting with founders and associates as well as collaborating with like minded investors all from your comfort at home.

For Investors

IO Private is all about supporting our investor friends. In addition to out IO Private platform, offering a reliable source of credible and exciting start-up investment opportunities, we will continue to have regular catch ups (zoom for now) to collaborate on exploring the investment opportunities as well as share experience and insights with our listed emerging investment opportunities via our private investor support services.

We welcome any investor comments, guidance and support to keep our local entrepreneurial ecosystem thriving. Interestingly we have already assisted several investors in their endeavours and welcome investor enquiries.

For Associate Partners

It takes dedicated experts to identify, nurture and give the entrepreneurs a real opportunity to take on their dreams, give their start-up a chance to compete and build our next success stories. It’s our pleasure here at IO Private to support our dedicated associates and list their quality investment opportunities on the IO Private platform. We do believe a successful culture takes a TEAM effort and we are happy to play our part.

For Entrepreneurs

Our dynamic entrepreneurs are dedicated to their journeys and we welcome them to our private platform. Our platform strives to stimulate interactions between founders and investors as we allow our investor community to DIRECTLY contact the founding entrepreneurs.

We are striving hard to be part of the next generation of start-up success stories.
