Geelong Angel Investor Network helps businesses earn wings
THEY’RE called “angel investors”, but this Geelong group likes to keep things distinctly real.
The Geelong Angel Investor Network backs owners of scalable enterprises looking to take their business to the next level, such as developing sales or marketing capacity, investing in product development or expanding into a national or international market.
Volume Group company director Adam Montgomery, one of GAIN’s eight investor members, said assessing the business founder, in addition to the business proposition, was a key part of the process.
“You have to believe in them from that moment they pitch or talk of what they have done with their company,” Mr Montgomery said.
“They have to be real … and then we all understand where we sit with those people.”
