Tank Stream Ventures

Tank Stream Ventures

We fund and support extraordinary ,
leveraging technology to solve core human needs.

We’re an early stage venture capital firm based in Sydney, Australia

We invest in strong teams building scalable defensible businesses leveraged by technology. We support founders with an almost obsessive vision to disrupt existing industries, create new ones and improve lives through technology.

We like technology with a problem solving vision as opposed to a solution driven one. We see technology as an enabler rather than an end in itself.

We like to understand why you are the best team/product/business to solve a specific problem. Ideally, you should have an unfair and sustainable advantage that will turn out to be the company’s strongest defensibility.

If this seems a fit, get in touch.

We focus on solving core human problems

We focus on solving core human problems

We have distilled our investment thesis into 4 core pillars centered around a human component – the way humans LIVE, MOVE, TRANSACT and WORK.

We like to get involved as early as we can and are flexible in terms of geography – we’ve made investments from Hobart to Stockholm, with a strong concentration in Australia and the US.

If this seems a fit, get in touch.
