Founders we back are building amazing companies

What do they have in common?

What kind of companies?

We aren’t sector-specific and have invested in enterprise, B2B and B2C companies. We’ve invested in startups across fin-tech, data, cybersecurity, augmented reality, HR and workplace platforms, as well as logistics.

In 2020, we have a particular interest in companies with strong data strategies, cybersecurity and enterprise software.

What do we look for?

Smart tech solving big problems is a given. For us it’s all about team. Strong founders with a good mix of skills and a clear sense of what kind of team they need to build to win their race. Australians tend to undersell themselves and come to VCs with clear plans for achievable wins, which is good. But we also want to hear your big vision.

When do we invest?

We invest at the late seed to series A stage. We have been the first cheque for many of our startups but in round two or three for some of the others. Usually, companies have a product already in market or about to launch as well as a clear on view their target customers and go-to-market, even though we all know this will evolve a lot over the years.

What is your process?

Glad you asked. Full details here. But in essence: we try to keep it as time-efficient as possible for founders. For companies that make it all the way through, it’s a few meetings, with the nitty-gritty due diligence running as a parallel process. Most of the companies we’ve backed got a clear “yes we’re committed” very quickly.

Sending a deck helps, but it’s not mandatory, especially if you’re reaching out before you raise. But do include some information about you, the company, the vision, the problem you're solving, and your market and traction.
