We're one global team but we've got our own stories. Here's what makes us tick.
What one thing inspires you every day at Square Peg?
"Exposure to incredible people – our extraordinary founders that we support, highly intelligent investors, and, of course, the fantastic Square Peg team"
What in your childhood made your career trajectory probable?
"My father is self-employed and runs his own small business. Growing up I witnessed him work incredibly hard to achieve success. Seeing that first hand, taught me how to take ownership of problems and made me highly self-motivated. Without these values my trajectory would not have been possible!"
How did your last job equip you for this one?
"My last role was at PIMCO, one of the largest fixed income managers globally, which gave me a sense of what excellence looks like. I was an analyst working in Institutional Account Management and dealt with some of the most sophisticated institutional investors across Australia and New Zealand. Over three years at PIMCO, I learnt an enormous amount which provided the building blocks for my career."
Why should someone build a startup?
"To turn a vision or daydream into a reality and take a leap of faith to build something new and amazing."
What does the future hold?
I wish I had a crystal ball! I believe the search for yield by investors will continue and there will be a sustained shift into alternatives, such as venture capital, from more traditional asset classes. Disruption of incumbents across all verticals will only continue to accelerate and we will see remarkable innovation to solve vexing problems. Hopefully all of this translates into strong momentum for the Australian tech ecosystem."
Most insightful book this year?
"I recently read Endurance by Alfred Lansing which details Ernest Shackleton's harrowing and miraculous voyage to survive the Antarctic ice in 1914. Absolutely riveting."
