Blackbird Ventures invests in inherently global Internet businesses formed by Australians. We back world-class founders who are setting out to make a difference in the world. Blackbird Ventures itself is a collection of Australia’s most successful startup founders and Silicon Valley’s top investors who want to help you succeed on a global stage.

To back you, we have to believe that you’re better placed than anyone else in the world to succeed in your chosen area. We also believe that great developers can become great CEOs and our role is to assist with that personal growth.

We’re looking for businesses who are attacking large global markets from day one.  Your customers should not know or care that you’re Australian. Your chosen market should be BIG, big enough for your business to generate the magical number of $100m p.a. in revenue.  We have a particular focus on consumer and social internet, software as a service, mobile, e-commerce and software tools and services.

Our bread and butter is Seed and Series A investing. Portfolio Companies Include:

  • Autopilot—marketing automation you will actually use
  • Canva—the way design should be – online, social and remarkably simple
  • Safety Culture—complete Safety Management
  • Shoes of Prey—handmade custom women’s shoes shipped anywhere in the world
