Niki Scevak

Partner at Blackbird Ventures


Before Blackbird, I founded Startmate upon moving back to Sydney in 2010. Before investing, I also started two software companies and lived in New York.

I’m most excited about things I haven’t seen before. By the time there is a category, the best seed investments will have likely been made. I love to see a company right when it is started, not when it has a product or revenue. Having said that, I am diving deep into usecases in biology outside or healthcare. I love autonomous vehicles and robots of all kinds. Most of all I love strange and unique ideas and the wild heart founders that make them happen.
