In this episode, I interview Daniel Petre, Co-Founder of AirTree - one of the largest VC firms in Australia and New Zealand. Over it’s lifetime, AirTree has been an early investor in some of the country’s biggest startups, such as Canva, Mr Yum and LinkTree. Founded in 2014, Daniel has helped grow the business to now manage over $1.3 Billion with over 80 active investments.
Throughout the episode, Daniel talks about the key lessons he learnt from long time friend and mentor, Bill Gates. Interestingly, Daniel mentions that he goes against the traditional “move fast break things” approach that startups tend to follow in favour of more structured planning to not harm your end customer. Lastly, Daniel talks about the lack of philanthropy in Australia and how he’s made it his mission to make it the norm for successful Australians to give back.
