Where venture capitalists are investing over the next decade

Long-term investors have been advised to look at the trends that are set to ramp up over the next 10 years in order to nab a positive return.

During the “Emergence 2020 Australasia” flagship investment conference, five venture capitalists were asked what they believe the standout company or industry will be over the next decade.

According to co-founder of Uni-Innovation Group and founding partner of INP Capital Steven Xu, “the standout will be in the life science space”. 

“The first part will be the AI application that drives new drug development research area. We see that is in the past three years only, when we invested, only 20 companies globally. Now it’s 1,200 companies. 

“The second one: It is 10 years of pharmaceutical capitalism area globally that is beneficial to the patient.”

“The third one is the anti-ageing technology and stem cell,” Mr Xu said.

According to CEO of Scale Investors Ariana Baker, there is one standout company. 

“We’re investing in Goterra, which is a biological waste management company. So, it is overhauling the way that cities deal with their organic waste by using insects,” Ms Baker said.

Founder and managing director at Ausbiz Kylie Merritt also picked an individual company that she believes will be the biggest winner over the next decade.

“Handy is it is a business which is basically automating the small claims process insurance,” Ms Merrit said.

Entrepreneur at PieLAB Venture Partners Chris Rolls believes the ageing population will provide an opportunity for investors.

“I think that’s going to have a fundamental impact across multiple industries due to the increasing number of people living longer and having a lot longer period of life post-work,” Mr Rolls said.

Finally, CEO of Deepbridge Capital Australia James Callianiotis said sustainability and food sciences are going to be the long-term winners.

However, the fund manager highlighted to investors that current positions may not be attractive in the long term.

“I don’t really know with the ones that I’ve invested in, because I think they’re all going to be exited by that period of time,” Mr Calliantois concluded.
