More money
More support
for emerging founders.

Oh, and No Bullsh*t.
We're an Aussie seed VC fund that does things differently.
We invest in first-time founders in their first-rounds, often before anyone else. More money and hands-on support at seed.
Seed VC

First-time is our rule, not exception.

We're a diverse and young team that believes the world's next great founders come in all shapes and sizes.

More money, fast.

$200k-$500k investment for more doing, less fundraising.

We're an Australian seed VC that invests more in your first-round so you have more time to refine your go-to-market strategy, not focus on raising the next round.

We lead each investment, or join a round. And flexible vals.

We're happy to lead your seed round and get you a term sheet fast. Often we help attract more investment. And yes, we're flexible on valuations depending on your stage and sector.

More support, from active operators.

Customer deals, not pitch days.

Our post-investment support is focussed on helping you build effective sales and cutting-edge products, and working out how to get-into-market to grow. No time-wasters, please.

Bringing robust support, down to seed.

Coaches, Sprint Week program, Founder Socials, Workshops, and all-in support. Our team of coaches are here to help with building scalable products, building Sales teams, growing revenue, hire great talent, all with a goal to create a category-leading businesses.

And an ambitious team to make it all happen.

We understand emerging founders, and we're not your average VC, with under 35 year old, LGBT-identifying founding partners. We've built companies, accelerators and worked with hundreds of founders, just like you.
Investment Stage

Industry Agnostic

We invest in ambitious people and global ideas. We love web, software, hardware, deep-tech and life sciences.

Looking To Grow

We like to invest to help you get to market. Ideally you have an early product in the market to solve a problem, and the next step is getting customers on board.
