I am an angel investor in some of Australia’s fastest growing startups. My goal is to find the next Canva, Atlassian or Afterpay, and consistently bring the best deals out of the Australian startup ecosystem to my syndicate. I understand the Australian market and can identify which startups will have success on a global scale.
To find the next great Australian startup, I’m on the ground every day, helping wildly ambitious founders build globally scalable companies.
I have built the best early-stage deal flow in Australia, which led me to personally identify high-growth Australian startups for multiple large international funds.
I will share investments where I have a deep relationship with the founders, invested a significant amount personally and my due diligence has supported that the startup can win their market.
Leading international VCs and Angels are now investing heavily in Australia, regularly visiting to build their pipeline. Canva, Atlassian and Afterpay have put the spotlight on our amazing Australian founders and startups, backed by our rich history and successful track record with technology.
I’ll syndicate investments where I have a deep relationship with the founders, invested a significant amount personally and my due diligence has supported that the startup can win their market.
I see over 800 deals in Australia each year and will select the top 4 to syndicate. I will be extremely passionate about these 4 startups that I syndicate and will do everything in my power to support them.
I have built one of the largest networks in the Australian startup ecosystem that regularly refers to me awesome Australian startups that are thinking global from day one. This includes the biggest VC and angel investor groups, employees from Australia’s leading companies like Canva and Atlassian that are launching their own startups and cold outreach.
I’m also a mentor at many of the leading accelerators in Australia, including the University of New South Wales Founders Program (this is Australia’s leading technology University where the Atlassian founders attended). Startups with founders from this University have raised over $4.8b, 7 have had IPOs and 69 have been acquired.
