Angel Investor Adrian Stone on Investing in Today's Circumstances and Surviving in These Times

The Perfect Pitch Show

On today's episode of the Perfect Pitch Show, Head of Community at Runway Virtual Brandon Burns is chatting with Adrian Stone. Adrian is a serial entrepreneur, founder, angel investor and global business person. He has a soft spot for start-ups in regional and remote Australia, understanding their struggles in being removed from major cities and their resources. However, in today's current condition, with everyone self-isolating, Adrian believes that our remote and regional entrepreneurs are in a better position to get through this as they are used to being more flexible to gain information and resources while being isolated. He has a portfolio of over 30 startups that he has invested in and he knows how much of a struggle it can be to raise money. He talks to us about how to stay afloat as a startup and as an investor in these difficult circumstances.Check out more from Adrian here!Runway VirtualLinkedIn
