We are a venture capital fund that invests in Australia, Israel and Southeast Asia with a focus on Series A and Series B.
Read our ethos
Our entrepreneurs are the centre of our universe. They are uncommonly bright. Visionary and optimistic. Hugely resilient. Curious. Disciplined decision-makers and fiercely fast executors. Notably individualistic. Magnets for talented people. Energised by their mission. Ambitious and focused. It is tremendously rare to find these people–they are the square pegs in a world of round holes. It’s a privilege to support them.
We share the belief that technology has the potential to move humanity forward. At the heart of Square Peg’s global team is a commitment to teamwork. We are big readers, thinkers and learners because we always aspire to raise the bar. We are unashamedly ambitious for each other and the entrepreneurs for whom we work. We make mistakes and hope to be proven wrong. Those who know us well say there is an ease with which we switch from serious to playful.
Our investment process is rapid, disciplined and transparent. Our initial investment is almost always in a company’s first or second round of funding when the product is nascent, and the potential is the greatest. We prefer to lead rounds and join company boards because we serve our entrepreneurs most effectively when we provide attentive, strategic advice underpinned by teamwork. Our greatest contribution is aligning our expertise to an entrepreneur’s needs – whether that’s to hire, grow or raise.
We are fortunate to have investors whose approach to venture capital investing is aligned with our own: ambitious, committed and long-term. In the earliest days, our Limited Partners were a small group of entrepreneurs determined to support the next generation of technology builders. Our investor group now includes superannuation funds, endowments, family offices and entrepreneurs. We are humbled by their support for us and in turn, the companies with which we partner.
