Next Tuesday’s Coffee Microcaps conference in Sydney will connect retail and wholesale investors with standout ASX-listed industrial microcap stocks.

Now sold out, the conference is on its second run after a successful debut on the investor roadshow circuit earlier this year.

It provides smart retail and wholesale investors the opportunity to “discover the hidden gems”, with 12 microcap companies presenting throughout the day, alongside a fund manager panel.

Mark Tobin, conference founder and a former fund manager at Wilson Asset Management, says the demand from investors for insightful roadshows was high.

Tobin has been passionate about finding “undiscovered” microcap stocks ever since he began his career as an equity analyst in Sydney, and has been hooked on offering the same opportunities to investors ever since.

“The second Coffee Microcaps conference follows hot on the heels of a very successful inaugural event held in back in April 2019,” he tells Stockhead.

“We seek to provide a platform for industrial microcap stocks listed on the ASX to tell their story to an engaged microcap investor audience, both retail and wholesale.

“The upcoming event is completely sold out, but plans are already afoot for the next instalments in Sydney and Melbourne in April 2020, given the strong demand from both the presenting ASX microcap companies and the microcap investor community to date.

Companies presenting including innovative tech companies such as HR tech business Knosys (ASX:KNO), medtech Pacific Knowledge Systems (ASX:PKS) and edtech Janison (ASX:JAN), as well as Bombora Investment Management and scaffold and formwork supplier Acrow (ASX:ACF).

Knosys provides knowledge management software, including its enterprise solution, KnowledgeIQ,  an application designed to bring together information from existing but rundown web-enabled systems.

It has since launched KIQ Cloud, a knowledge management platform that caters to the masses by simply and intelligently centralising workplace tasks.

Working with health organisations around the world, Pacific Knowledge Systems offers technology that automates burdensome and time-consuming processes so that health employees can focus on patients instead.

Founded in 1998, Janison is an edtech pioneer providing innovative digital learning and assessment solutions for global corporations, governments and education bodies, across more than 40 countries. It has a stated goal of improving education outcomes.

Bombora CIO, director and portfolio manager Gregg Taylor has 20 years of international business experience in financial markets and the technology, sports administration, media and retail industries.
