Last year information about capital fundraising in Australia brought positive changes to the startup ecosystem. On the other hand, data contains warnings that this compounded growth will stop one day.
The Australian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association Limited (AVCAL) annual report on private equity and venture capital in Australia say that there are much more investments now. This was happening for the first time over the years before the global financial crisis of 2008-09.
The total fund-raising for both venture capital and private equity increased to 3.35 billion dollars, compared with the capital of 2.74 billion dollars in 2016. This was largely related to a year of attracting venture capital, which made 1.32 billion dollars as much, which is more than double of 2016 index.
The report indicates that total venture capital investment in Australian companies rose by 24% invested in a record number of 117 start-ups which receive capital mainly on seed round or the series A funding round. The most invested sectors were digital technology and ICT, which venture capital investments made 42% of the general amount, and health and life sciences sectors (33% of investments).
As previously reported, main investors in the Middle East tend to invest in foreign projects.
