You're In Good Company

Are startups a good investment? | Natalie Collins


Imagine being there in the early days of Canva... watching a disruptive company come into the mix and being given the chance to invest in its early stages. Considering its now $55 billion (AUD) valuation, we reckon the investment would have paid off! Well, there are people who invest in these companies for a living, constantly trying to spot start-ups that will come through and change our lives as we know them. Today, we have an incredibly insightful chat with Natalie Collins, an angel investor in the Startmate Venture Capital First Believers Immersion program about what she looks for in up-and-coming companies and how to invest in start-ups.

Keep track of Sophie and Maddy between the episodes on Instagram, or on TikTok, and come and be part of the conversation on Facebook with our You’re In Good Company Discussion Group.
