We're not your typical angel network

Horizon is our community that empowers angel investors to expand their network, learn from experts, and co-invest in exceptional founders. Our members are experienced investors, ex-founders, CEOs, and high-net-worth individuals who share a passion for helping the next generation of Australian entrepreneurs thrive.

Our mission is to improve the startup landscape in Australia through focused investments in ambitious early-stage founders. As a founder-friendly network, we do not take a fee from either the founder or investor. This is not a syndicate structure, but an "investor community" comprised of unique and experienced investors who come together to access Innovation Bay’s founder community.

We're looking for great investors to come together with other great investors. If that's you get in touch.

The Innovation Bay team knows how to run a startup/investor event. They have honed their craft, know the audiences, and have a way of facilitating high-powered discussions unlike any group that I have come across in Australia.

The challenges of being a tech founder are difficult to shoulder alone. Being a member of Summit has given me an instant network of founders that have the same problems, but also, the same passion.

It is the trusted secure environment that allows for vulnerability and challenging conversations that you can't share with others, plus all delivered with great humour, casualness, and care of the whole person.

Presenting to the Innovation Bay investor community is the best thing that has happened to my startup. I felt well prepared going in to the event, and had a highly successful outcome. I couldn't recommend it more.
