Rick Baker

Partner at Blackbird Ventures


I'm a co-founder of Blackbird Ventures, a venture capital firm in Australia. Blackbird invests in the most ambitious companies forming in Australia. It has been built around a group of Australia's most successful tech founders, combined with close ties to Silicon Valley.

Prior to Blackbird, I was responsible for MLC’s venture capital portfolio with investments of over half a billion dollars. Prior to MLC, I co-founded two software companies: IDC Global and Right Party Connect.

Passionate about Aussie startups that dare to attack a global market day one!
