Start-ups must take risk and look outward: VC fund

Amir Zalcenstein, a healthcare investment manager with OneVentures, said the outward focus and appetite for risk were the biggest differences he had noticed between the Australian and Israeli venture capital industries since moving to Melbourne six months ago.
“Australia is a big enough place to allow people the illusion that it is a big enough market, when in fact what we are looking for is something that is able to be leveraged globally,’’ Dr Zalcenstein said.
