Why Starfish Ventures?

Starfish Ventures is one of the most experienced and long established Venture Capital fund managers in Australia. Over the last 15 years, they’ve invested more than $400 million in over 50 high-growth companies through three separate funds.

Starfish Ventures’ strategy is to invest in proven technology start-ups and innovative life-science companies in the chronically under-serviced Australian Series A and B investment range.

These companies have built a proven customer base with $2-3 million turnover or have achieved critical clinical milestones and seek an injection of capital and strategic guidance to achieve rapid growth and profitable exits for investors.

With expertise in finance, science and entrepreneurship, the Starfish Ventures senior team have more than 50 combined years of experience managing high-growth companies. They invest in people, not just businesses.

John Dyson, Michael Panaccio and Anthony Glenning are active investors and don’t take a back seat, currently board directors of 20 investee companies. Their experience and a hands on approach helps founders become better leaders and build high-calibre leadership teams that make smart, strategic decisions.
