About Square Peg

Square Peg exists to empower the exceptional.

As a venture capital fund, our vision is to be the first-choice partner for early stage founders in Australia, South East Asia, and Israel.

We founded Square Peg in 2012 to partner with the next generation of technology pioneers and assist them as they grow and scale their organisations. We are proud to work with the founders of companies such as HealthMatch, Fiverr, PropertyGuru and Airwallex in our portfolio.

We have just raised a further $400m and today manage funds of over $1b. Our investor group includes superannuation funds, endowments, family offices and entrepreneurs, who are aligned with us in committing to venture capital investing over the long-term.

At Square Peg, we are passionate about representing the diverse and multicultural founders we work with. Although our Investment Team is made up of incredibly unique individuals, women are under-represented in this team. We embrace thinking differently and want to draw strength from our diversity, so eagerly encourage women to apply. For more on who we are and what drives us, head to www.squarepegcap.com.
