For serious founders who want to make a difference


Develop a method

By taking you through a cadence of consistently invalidating your documented assumptions. The faster you learn about what needs pivoting, the faster you will achieve product-market fit.

Work on your idea

Regardless of stage or progress, assuming full responsibility for its strategy and execution. No more playing games; we understand how much becoming a successful founder means to you.

We look beyond

If you can show consistency of execution through validated learning, you will be introduced to our network of local angel investors. You don't need to prove that you are good on paper anymore.

Fernando and I are friends since 2013 and, although he doesn't pursue self-promotion and often flies under the radar, I can say with confidence that he's a tough-leader that is going to have a big impact in the Australian startup community. I'm always excited to hear about and support his initiatives to raise the maturity of his local startup ecosystem; first in Argentina, where we met, and now in Sydney.

Sydney is a high growth eco-system, even compared to established hubs such as Silicon Valley and Tel Aviv, but we need more founders using Lean Startup to innovate, test and validate their ideas.

We strongly encourage the early stage founders that we back to follow Lean Startup principles. If new startups applied the methodology correctly, we’d have even greater startup success in Australia.
