Greetings from the Mural Hall of Parliament House Canberra, where The Venture Capital Effect is being launched. This report is from the Australian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association, so is very pro-VC.
This is of interest to me as I help students undertaking start-ups at the Australian National University. Some of these are extra-curricular activities such as the Innovation ACT competition, while others are part of their degree program through ANU Techlauncher.
Unfortunately all the MPs had to go to a division, just they were getting up to speak at the event. Perhaps one new venture could be an electronic voting system for Parliament, so MPs need not be in the chamber. ;-)
