Aura Ventures joins Antler Investment Committee as guest panelist

Tristan Terry was Aura Ventures’ representative on the latest installment of the Antler Investment Committee



Tristan Terry, Director of the Aura Group Venture Fund, was Aura Ventures’ representative on the latest instalment of the Antler Investment Committee, along with Dan Szekely of Equity Venture Partners and James Tynan of Square Peg.

The three-strong guest panel, alongside members of the Antler Global and Antler Australian team, helped determine the fate of three young companies from the current Antler Australia cohort. Discussions included; a building supplies marketplace, a P2P residential property marketplace and an autonomous aviation company.

Antler is a start-up ‘generator’ that runs programs across the world with a core focus on bringing exceptional founders together. Once teams are formed within the program, Antler then provides financial and strategic support to founders while also mentoring the teams to a point where they can ‘fend for themselves’ and raise external capital.

We view the relatively new presence of the Antler program in Australia as a very healthy component for the local start-up ecosystem. The benefits to all downstream investors such as Aura Ventures are only positive through both the additional numbers of companies making it to commercialisation and the quality of those companies. With this in mind, we are always very happy to help progress the Australian start-up ecosystem.
