Entrepreneur and Global IT Services Business Coach

hi, i am ian markram

Entrepreneur and Global IT Services Business Coach

I derive great fulfilment from the various roles I embody, as a loving husband and devoted father. Beyond my family responsibilities, I thrive as a driven businessman and professional investor.

I am fueled by a passion for innovation and cutting-edge technologies, eagerly seeking out the next big thing in the dynamic startup scene of Australia. Supporting and mentoring entrepreneurs as angel investor is a source of inspiration and empowerment for me. I am proud of my track record as a seasoned entrepreneur, having successfully sold my IT services firm to a top global company.

It is not just about financial achievements but the continuous journey of learning, growth, and personal development that drives me forward. My diverse investment portfolio, spanning commercial and residential property, thriving breweries, digital media, software, and professional services, reflects my embrace of diversity and the digital revolution.

I am grateful for the impact I make in the lives of others and eagerly anticipate the future, both as a family-oriented individual and a trailblazing investor.
