Contact our ventures team
We partner with exceptional founders to transform novel ideas into high-growth companies.
We know how hard it is to build successful ventures and the common pitfalls that founders typically fall into, because we've been in your shoes. The odds are against non-technical founders, in particular, but for all new startup founders across Australasia, securing your first $1m remains a big challenge. Despite being able to access support from a thriving Australasian startup ecosystem, most startups will fail.
That's where we come in.
Our dedicated team works shoulder-to-shoulder with early-stage founders from day one, essentially fulfilling the role of your own internal product development team, until you establish product-market fit, gain substantial traction, and ultimately, branch out on your own with our ongoing advisory.
As of this year 87% of our ventures have reached the $1m ARR milestone and 90% have raised over a million in capital.

It takes more than a compelling vision to create a successful business. We rigorously select the founders we work with, as we essentially become an extension of your founding team. We are agnostic to industry but are looking for venture scale businesses in large or growing markets that are tech or tech enabled.
We're after founders who:
Have an idea and a compelling vision (obviously)
Have grit and determination
Have capital or are willing to raise it (with our help!)
Want us involved early in your journey
Willing to part with a small equity stake
Have deep domain experience in their startup's industry or vertical
Over a period of 12-18 months, we help you build your business better, faster, and stronger than you could on your own.
You get world class brains and expertise at no cost. Our main aim here is to get strong signal that “this venture is going to fly”.
We bring on a team of experienced engineers, designers & product people, dedicated solely to bringing your product to life.
We keep supporting your journey even when you’ve hired your own in house team and flown the nest.
