Buying into innovation with Simon Erickson
In this episode of The Australian Investors Podcast, Simon Erickson from 7investing walks us through his journey, including his process for investing in high growth companies/stocks, innovative technology companies and the future of emerging industries like personalised medicine and machine learning inference.
Simon Erickson’s backstory is different to most professional investors. He studied chemical engineering, then worked in sales, then technology ventures and spent many years at The Motley Fool, finding high growth companies.
Not too long ago Simon started 7investing, a unique platform offering market-beating investing insights and stock reports to investors eager to buy tomorrow’s most innovative companies, today.
Simon has surrounded himself with a first-class team of technologists and investors at 7investing, including Dr Anirban Mahanti, who has appeared on The Australian Investors Podcast once before.
I — Owen — was so thrilled to have Simon join me on The Australian Investors Podcast, all the way from Houston, Texas, to share his insights on:
- How he finds innovative companies
- If his engineering background offers him unique insights into modern technologies
- How he builds a team, and what he looks for in the management teams he invests alongside
- 2 industries he is very excited to invest in right now
