Tuesday, February 20th, 2018 - Wholesale Investor

Wholesale Investor, Australia’s leading investment platform, will host Emergence 2018 in Sydney this week where up to 1000 investors, start-ups and industry leaders will come together to hear the latest trends and opportunities in start-ups, Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, emerging and listed companies.

Presented in association with principal partners Investec and BMYG, and event sponsors Merger Market, Apollo Capital and Small Caps; the exclusive showcase will feature company presentations, workshops and ten panels, where 45 panellists will discuss leading investment trends across three huge days. 

“With the boom in the space, we have also noticed that it has also become more and more fragmented,” said Steve Torso, Managing Director of Wholesale Investor.

“Emergence was born out of the simple idea, to bring multiple components of the ecosystem together and shine a light on the great work they do. Our hope in doing this is simple - creating new opportunities in the short and long term. We know the power of an introduction. We know the power of bringing people together in a spirit of collaboration and opportunity,” he said.

Across the three days, attendees will hear from several key guest speakers, including; Steve Baxter from Shark Tank Australia and River City Labs, James Spenceley from Vocus Communications and MHOR, and Albert Bielenko from Telstra Ventures.

Following the recent explosion of interest in the Cryptocurrency space, the first day will also feature presentations from 15 Cryptocurrency and Blockchain companies set to discuss trends, risks and the influence behind the hype that has been generated.

“One of the biggest areas of discussion in 2018 has been around Cryptocurrencies and its potential to change the world as we know it. We want to highlight the opportunities and challenges investors could face from this emerging area,” said Steve.

Telsa will also be showcasing two of their vehicles at the entrance to the venue during the first day of the conference.


Date: Wednesday 21 - Friday 23 February 2018

Time: 9:00am – 5:00pm
