    Make Investors Work for You
    Feeling like there’s something missing from your investors? Join Benjamin Chong (of Right Click Capital) and billionaire investor Tim Draper (of the worldwide Draper Venture Network) as they sit on a panel with the founders of successful Australian technology startups Expert360, IntelligenceBank and Designcrowd. Together, they'll be sharing their greatest tips on getting the most out of early stage technology investors.

    Tim has been recognised as a leading supporter of entrepreneurship, listed as #46 of the most outstanding Harvard alumni, #7 on the Forbes Midas List, #1 of the Most Networked Venture Capitalists by Always On, and #98 in Worth Magazine’s 100 Most Powerful People in Finance. He also received the World Entrepreneurship Forum’s “Entrepreneur for the World” in 2015.

    Why should you attend?
    Make Investors Work for You is your inside scoop on how four successful entrepreneurs unlocked their investors' networks and discovered which investors would add value to their business, post-investment. Hear how to benefit from investors' experiences, both good and bad, and find out how to identify the red flags before it's too late. Uncover methods to build meaningful and enduring relationships with your investors that will help propel your business to success.

    If you're searching for great investors or insights on how best to leverage your investors over and above just money, Make Investors Work for You is for you.

    There will be a Q&A session at the end as well as the great opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs and potential investors!

    Drinks and nibbles will also be provided, courtesy of the lovely folk at Little Fresh.
