About Square Peg
Square Peg is a venture capital fund that invests in Australia, Israel and Southeast Asia with a focus on Series A and Series B.
We founded Square Peg in 2012 to partner with the next generation of technology pioneers and assist them to grow their organisations. Success takes time and hard work. We provide patient capital and partnership over long time horizons and live by the belief that what's best for our companies is best for us.
Our name describes us well as individuals, as investors and partners, and as a team. We value and foster creativity; we continually search for better ways to do things; contrarian thinkers; and we are not wedded to conventional wisdom of how a venture capital firm should operate. We are charting our own course.
We are privileged to have as our investors forward-thinking superannuation funds, entrepreneurs, endowments and family offices that share our vision.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status or sporting team affiliation.
