Curtin Angel Syndicate

Early stage investment forms a critical component of the journey for many startup founders and innovation driven businesses. Yet participation in angel investing remains relatively low in Western Australia compared to other regions.

Curtin University has developed the Curtin Angel Syndicate to address this problem, providing a mechanism for the founders supported through our Entrepreneur pipeline to access capital from angel investors drawn from the Curtin community, and for prospective investors to gain an education around the process of angel investing.
