In 2016 Aussie punters wagered $657m over the four day Melbourne Cup Festival.

In previous years many have observed that Australia wagers more on the Melbourne Cup than is invested in Startups.

Techboard's research reveals that this year to date over $800 million of funding flowed into Australian and young tech companies in Australia. If debt facilities are added in this amount jumps to over $1.4 billion.
