Justin Angsuwat

Chief People Officer

What do you do at Blackbird?

My mission is to build Blackbird to be one of Australia’s best companies, and make the Australian and New Zealand startup ecosystem wildly successful.
This means having the right strategy, goals, people, culture and systems to invest in, and then support the most ambitious founders.

What did you do before Blackbird?

I was living in NYC and SF, and was fortunate to have amazing experiences, including at Google, a Silicon Valley unicorn (Thumbtack), in consulting, as well as being an advisor to VCs and startups.


What do you believe that others do not?

I believe in being adventurous enough to fail at something new. Frequently.
