Very cool idea.
AfterWork Ventures, a “micro” venture capital fund - led by younger generation - could this new VC support under-represented entrepreneurs? Is this the makings of a fierce community?
Since 2017, Afterwork has made thirty investments across two portfolios including into a fintech start-up (Wagetap) that lets employees access part of their pay before payday and a healthy pet food delivery company called Lyka.
Their proof of concept fund had $1 million under management from around fifteen different investors.
Nice to see diversity in the VC industry!

"The NSW government aims to develop an online research and development “match-making” service between industry and universities to solve “real world” problems." Let's save time and effort and use Australia's @Idea Spies, which is already in market and doing a brilliant job of showcasing the great work of researchers to a global audience, as part of the solution to this wicked problem.
"A diplomatic overture extending an olive branch of friendship by exporting the means of production of one of its most valuable resources, rather than just the fruits of it." The leading cybersecurity college in Israel, HackerU, today formally lodged an official petition to the Australian National Government to accredit Australia’s first-ever Offensive 'Red Team' Cybersecurity Qualification and with it potentially comes to a new framework for international trade. This idea of exporting education and not cybersecurity expertise means that Australians can train Australians to be industry experts and world-leaders, exceptionally important for this digital age and industry.
