With an unprecedented 27 consecutive years of economic growth under its belt, Australia is ripe for investment and is drawing attention from talented professionals.
The Australian tech sector in particular is growing quickly and continues to attract international interest. Now, after years of closely following the rise of tech in the country, the Investing News Network (INN) is ready to launch news and educational coverage of the industry.
With a core focus on contextualizing complex topics in the tech arena and helping both new and sophisticated investors make better decisions, INN Australia will provide content on tech market news and trends, stocks to watch and more.
