Brisbane Business News Breakfast Series continues at Customs House on Wednesday, September 23 with another highly anticipated guest speaker, Blue Sky Alternative Investments (ASX:BLA) founder and managing director Mark Sowerby.

As the founder and managing director of Australia's first diversified alternatives asset manager, Sowerby is well versed in investment opportunities beyond traditional markets.

Established as a private equity house in 2006, Blue Sky has expanded to offices across Australia and a base in New York all without losing its start-up mentality.

The business has notched $1.35 billion in assets under management and reported a 68 per cent lift in profit to $10.4 million last financial year.

Blue Sky's impressive track record of returning capital to investors means it's well-placed to capitalise on Australia's growing demand for alternative assets.

The company is exploring opportunities in student accommodation, agriculture, healthcare and education, having already facilitated multimillion-dollar deals across these sectors.

Blue Sky plans to grow its venture capital division by deploying more capital in burgeoning businesses, as well as invest through the Blue Sky Alternatives Access Fund (ASX:BAF).

From sky to sea, Sowerby has recently returned from a personal venture in the UK swimming across the English Channel.

Gain an insight into what it takes to dive out of your comfort zone, and how Sowerby applies his experience to the business.

Don't miss this fantastic opportunity to hear from one of Brisbane's most successful and award-winning entrepreneurs.

The event promises to be a fantastic opportunity to hear from a high-profile and successful entrepreneur.
