We founded Blackbird in 2012 with a single mission: to supercharge the most ambitious founders.
Our Team is an eclectic mix of people based in Australia and New Zealand.
We’ve all started companies ourselves and know what it’s like to survive the startup rollercoaster.
We are community driven
and we believe founders are the best people to help founders.
We are proud to count the founders of Atlassian, Aconex, Campaign Monitor and Trade Me as our investors.
Early on we invested in some amazing companies like Canva, Safety Culture, Zoox and Culture Amp.
This track record enabled us to raise four funds that have grown to over a billion dollars in value.
We invest in startups from pre-seed to pre-IPO.
We first invested $250,000 in Canva when it was just an idea. We’ve now invested more than $100m in the company.
We want to take that same journey with you.
