This is a watershed moment for the local startup tech scene. Marcus has been a fixture in the sector for 10 years, as entrepreneur, mentor and investor, and there is no better person to be leading the first local company to attract this size of investment (C-series round) from a major global VC firm such as Sequoia. This is terrific for HealthEngine, and gives hope to hundreds of other local startups who want to develop a global tech business from Perth. It can be done!
