AirTree Ventures

Paul Bennetts

Venture Partner

At university, I started a computer store. Began making profits. Used it to expand inventory and grow to multiple locations. Read a book on Warren Buffett. Loved learning how other businesses work. PC prices kept decreasing. Started investing outside of the business.

Joined Goldman Sachs. Spent too long there. Kept my head down as the GFC hit. I then became the Investment Manager for the c.$500m Tulla Family Office. We had an open mandate to invest in anything. Investing in businesses is fun. Bond investing not so much.

Got to know Craig Blair and Daniel Petre as they were planning to launch AirTree Ventures. We raised and invested the $60m AirTree Fund I over the next 2.5 years. I had a blast. I learned a lot. A lot!

Now, I’m building a Spaceship. You can read about us in the AFRThe AustralianSMHThe AgeMashableBusiness InsiderStartupDailyStartupSmart and Pedestrian TV. Invest your Super where the world is going, not where it has been.
