A bit about us...

Rampersand VC is an Australian early stage venture capital fund based in Melbourne. We invest in and support visionary Australian and New Zealand technology founders as they build world-changing business. Since 2013 Rampersand has invested in more than 20 companies including Expert360, Sendle, Assembly Payments, PredictHQ, Skedulo and are always looking for more.

We back founders who are creating technology-based companies that improve everything from how students share and learn, how organic waste is recycled into animal feed, the way goods and services are paid for, post delivered, companies find and engage teams and a range of new and emerging problems for companies, individuals and societies.

Normally we are the first investor into a company, starting at Seed or Series A, so we are highly motivated to find brilliant founders, wherever they are, before they are well known.
