We connect startups with corporates and investors to solve globally relevant challenges with technology.
We help entrepreneurs design and build their pilot products in exchange for equity. We also typically invest up to $50,000 in cash into idea-stage startups from our partners and VC fund(s) and provide training through our ‘156’ program supported by a team of full time entrepreneurs in residence (EIR). We further provide an engineering team who build the first product.
We are a team of 50 people with deep knowledge in achieving product-market fit, raising capital and establishing pilots. We have substantial expertise in development for web and mobile, as well as experienced senior people in product management and marketing. We are privately backed by some of the most respected family offices in Australia and the US.
We invest in non-coding entrepreneurs who hold deep domain knowledge in their chosen industry (we look for founder-market fit) and we look for companies which have strong operational models. We then help our startups raise follow-on funding from our investor community and venture capital funds as well as help them hire their own engineering teams. We typically invest up to $250,000 in selected later stage companies on a follow-on basis. By connecting with our corporate partners to set up pilot trials, we help startups gain commercial traction.
