We incubate and invest in fast-growing companies around the world
Our ventures have been invested in by Google, Blackbird, Qantas and other top-tier VC firms
Our operating model combines that of a services company with an early stage startup incubator – reinvesting capital from the services business into funding and growing our own portfolio of tech companies. Internal capital is combined with capital from VCs and corporate investors to seed high-growth companies. Companies in which everyone at Dovetail has an ownership stake.
Why we do it
Our ventures arm lets us partner with ambitious founders to build great digital businesses. This allows us to create a long-term partnership with alignment. We win only when the venture wins.
Attract and retain great talent
A typical choice facing top technologists is whether to work for a stable company or start their own business. Everyone who works at Dovetail has an ownership stake in our ventures pool. This offers the potential upside and excitement of startups without having to put all your eggs in one basket.
Practice what we preach
In addition to our client work we actively work on projects where we have our own money at risk. When we offer advice to early-stage founders it’s because we’ve been there, done that, and are still doing it today.
Bring more good into the world
Businesses that are making a social impact are especially of interest to us. There is more to life than just making money and we want to use our skills to make the world a better place and support founders on a mission to do good.
