The platform, partnership, expertise and resources you need to grow your business.
MIT Ventures was founded in 2015 to support Australia's most ambitious technology entrepreneurs. We invest in Australian-founded companies at both early and at growth stage.
We have been on the ground in Australia developing unrivalled local insight, and supporting companies at all stages of growth from start-ups to grown-ups. We are part of the fabric of the Australian tech ecosystem with one of the deepest benches in Australia.
We offer entrepreneurs a broad range of services to help them build their businesses at every stage of growth. We realise that one size does not fit all when it comes to today’s operational challenges. We aim to add value where you need it most. Our seasoned team can assist you with as-needed, customisable services to help you tackle what’s next. Think of us as an à la carte menu of services. All of what you need and none of what you don’t.
Imagine you had a partner in your journey through the expansion stage. Someone who has been there before – hired a Head of Product, optimised growth funnels, fine-tuned pricing and packaging, scaled GTM strategies and so much more. Our team is here to help bring to bear the network, expertise and operational resources you need to make it all happen.
Once we understand what will move the needle in your business, we dig in to help. You’re in control, but we plug in at all levels of your organisation to help you organise, prioritise and extend the reach of your team in the areas that matter most: acquisition & conversion, retention & expansion, corporate development, pricing & packaging and executive network.
We take a human + technology approach to supporting our companies
We’re a team of enthusiastic data nerds, building data-driven products, measuring how we respond to your needs, and thinking about the next ways we can help.
We believed that applying unmatched data and technology to address the top pain points of early stage startups would produce an unfair advantage and outsized success for our portfolio.
Our deepest fear is that we will pass away without scoring a victory for humanity. This fear is what drives us to continuously push the limits and lead endeavours that make the world a little better off; without any expectation of recognition or praise in return.
Our Guiding Principles
Inspired by Mr Ray Dalio, we want an idea meritocracy in which meaningful work and meaningful relationships are pursued through radical truth and radical transparency. We are both idealistic and practical. We believe that creating excellent outcomes requires setting ambitious goals and applying our understanding of how the world works to achieve them.
