The Disruptors: 3 Revolutionary Aussie Companies to Back for 2018


We're living in one of the most exciting times in investing history.

Innovation and a booming culture of entrepreneurship are constantly creating new companies with the potential to make forward-thinking investors very rich.

Just look at how much some of Australia's most innovative companies have soared in value over the past year:

  • Xero. ASX:XRO +98%
  • Altium. ASX:ALU +150%
  • AfterPay. ASX:APT +290%

Now more than ever, one small, smart investment could make a huge difference to your wealth. That's why at The Motley Fool we've been scrutinizing the ASX to uncover the kinds of companies that we believe could turn into the next Cochlear or REA Group. We've found three:

But it's already a leader in developing and commercializing computerized solutions for brain function measurement and analysis. In fact, it works with nine of the top 10 global pharmaceutical companies, such as Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and Lilly and Merck.

To give you an idea of how big this company could get, the specialised and growing market for clinical cognitive assessment is currently worth US$ 800 million annually – and it's growing rapidly. If this dynamic, early mover company captures just a small portion of this expanding international market… the rewards for its shareholders have the potential to be huge.

Because of the tiny nature of this company we've had to reserve the full details for a select group of investors. But the good news is, right now there's a very easy way for you to join them…
