The Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur has been working with Australian online platform Wholesale Investor to provide a discounted rate to access Wholesale Investor's platform that connects emerging companies with over 17,700 international private investors including venture capital, family offices, brokers and private equity.
Access to the Wholesale Investor platform costs $10k. OQCE has secured a discount rate for Queensland-based startups of $2000. Membership also provides the benefit of publishing services (a bi-weekly newsletter), private introductions and presenting opportunities at investor events.
I know of startups that have got great value from Wholesale Investor and based on my own experience I endorse the platform. If founders are currently raising capital, getting into Wholesale Investor for 20% of the usual price is worth looking at.
