About the business

About the business


As Australia’s leading seed investment group, Investible fuses instinct with insight to back the world’s next generation of game-changers.


Investible was formally founded in 2014 by entrepreneurs-turned-angel investors Creel Price and Trevor Folsom to discover, invest in and support the world’s best early-stage companies. We provide founders with the financial, intellectual and human capital needed to scale.


A decade in the making, our novel approach uses data to distil the complexity of early-stage investment into a comprehensive and consistent process that de-risks portfolios. Our unique structure combines the skills and expertise of a global network of angel investors, Club Investible, with our venture capital funds launched in 2018 (Early Stage Fund 1) and 2021 (Early Stage Fund 2 and Climate Tech Fund).


Investible has backed more than 90 companies in 9 countries and 20 sectors, delivering investor returns in the top-quartile of all venture capital companies globally. With offices in Australia and Singapore, our mission is to elevate seed investment on a global scale and enable high-potential founders to realise their full potential.


To support our vision of backing visionary founders to build and scale extraordinary, global companies, we are seeking an Operations Manager who has a keen passion in startups and tech.
