28 February 2020 @ 12:00 - 14:00

2020…….Still Melbourne’s premier Angel networking event

Build your business and your investment portfolio by getting close to the people who make a difference!!

This is a networking lunch for you. We welcome everyone to join in the conversation. This is Angel investing Melbourne-style – it is fun, informative, friendly and a great precursor to the more serious times when we are reviewing deals and chasing exits for our founders.

Melbourne Angels invests in 20+ deals a year which puts it up there with the more active Angel groups in the world. Our members are professional and courteous in their conduct, impassioned and experienced in their pursuit of success for our portfolio companies, diverse and engaging in their areas of interest and intellectual horsepower.

This is your chance to get to know us, discover new trends, share your own experiences and explore how engaging with us as a member, or as a portfolio company can help change your life.

Our Speaker

Andrew Miles has over sixteen years’ experience in the R&D Tax Incentive program, Innovation Services and IP Analytics landscape. Andrew’s talk is: Here we go again!!!!! Back on the R&D tax merry go round.

The Treasury Laws Amendment (Research and Development Tax Incentive) Bill 2019 is in front of  Federal Parliament again to investigate “provisions” of the Bill.do provisional changes in: rates; a rebate cap; an R&D intensity test; and, increased program integrity measures mean to claimants? Why is there increased activity from AusIndustry and ATO? What will happen to innovation program funding in Australian? Finally, why is the R&D tax program receiving increased media attention and ATO amplification?

What to Expect

Share in impassioned conversation about all things early-stage over good food. We introduce to you a key opinion leader from within the eco-system who will address the diners and then field your queries.

Lunch includes appetiser, main and two drinks.

Great opportunity for prospective new members to get to know us better.
