Invest in a portfolio of world-class technology companies emerging from Dovetail's venture studio.

Dovetail Studios - Sydney

Dovetail Capital is operated by a team of proven enterpreneurs who have founded, scaled and sold technology companies in Australasia and the USA.

Our informational edge

The hands-on nature of our venture partnerships means that we have a far deeper understanding of the companies and founders that we invest in than traditional VC firms. Given that we work alongside founders in the trenches, we essentially invest with the informational edge of a co-founder.

Invest at the ground floor

We make investments at the pre-seed, seed and Series A stages, with capital concentrated at the Series A stage in companies that we have the highest conviction in. Our investment model provides access to early stage companies that are otherwise unavailable to invest in, with appropriate levels of diversification.

A track record of success

Our Venture Studio model has been baked into Dovetail since formation in 2016. We have consistently invested in venture creation since day zero. We have a strong foundation of ventures with a remarkable success rate. Dovetail Capital sits on top of that strong foundation.

Co-investment rights

Dovetail earns sweat equity in the companies that we help build through our venture studio. The preemptive rights associated with this equity are made available to Dovetail Capital at no cost - a unique benefit of combining our agency, venture studio, and venture capital businesses.

Dovetail Capital VC Fund I

Our first fund is a $10m ESVCLP fund investing in pre-seed, seed and Series A rounds across a portfolio of 12-15 ventures in Australia and New Zealand.
