My smartphone has taught me one thing - you can do more. Always more.

Tech QuestionsI’m here to cover the TechKnow Investor Roadshow, showcasing Australia’s latest (and possibly greatest) tech companies. I’m keen to learn what they’re up to as well as what the tech sector has in store for the canny investor.
For one thing, they’re all here at the behest of ‘DJ Carmichael’ and ‘Foster Stockbroking’, so one would assume they’re raising capital. But without putting their feet on the pavement and meeting grassroots investors, how else is a tech company supposed to blossom?
Over the past 2 years, Foster Stockbroking has helped nurture Australia’s most successful tech ideas from sketch board to shelf; and they are here today working with a new batch of aspirational tech players.
Investing in tech is notoriously difficult. Yes, the barriers to entry are miniscule. Yes, there is blue sky everywhere you look. Yes, everything is scalable and yes, the whole globe is flocking to the Internet in smartphone-wielding droves.
But still, commercially successful tech companies are few and far between.
Why do so many tech companies fail and what do the tech companies here today know that I don’t? Even more importantly, assuming I’m convinced of the indomitable online revolution, is there a tech company here today I could invest in? And should I?
These questions are boggling the minds of all investors here today. Not just me.
