We focus on companies and entrepreneurs who have big ideas and want to create transformative consumer experiences through the power of the internet. Investments are typically made at early stages (seed, round A or B) and involve capital placements of $50,000-$500,000. In addition, we typically play an active advisory role for these companies offering advice and mentorship to help maximize their chance for success.We also assist innovative, overseas digital companies that want to establish a presence in Australia/NZ. By understanding the local market and injecting our own capital, we can accelerate the growth of the business in this region to attain market leadership.
Early stage companies have great ideas but often times cannot bootstrap themselves to profitability. Other companies have customers and revenue, but want to invest in technology or new markets to accelerate growth. We have committed funds that are ready to be placed with entrepreneurs and can finalize investment decisions quickly.
We have worked with both large and small internet companies, and have grown companies to become market leaders in their sectors. We understand the inner workings of the biggest global internet companies but also how to build an innovative business from the ground up.
We dedicate time on-site to our portfolio companies, and will arrange and attend key meetings with strategic partners or clients. Informal mentorship and advice through email or a quick phone call can help avoid common pitfalls and guide decisions.
Tasman Ventures has key relationships in large web companies in Australia, the US, and the UK. These connections are critical to helping start the dialogue to create key strategic partnerships, or eventual exits. In addition, Tasman Ventures also has tight relations with Venture and Private Equity entities both in Australia and the US. While this stage of financing may not be required by every venture, it can also be a critical stepping stone for some.
We have been on the buying side from big media companies and know how they evaluate and process acquisitions. We can help ensure that you build it the right way and help navigate the right introductions and due diligence process.
Tasman Ventures strives to achieve the highest standard, and aligns with companies that pursue the same.We work as partners and align our interests to ensure the best outcome for all parties.
