Australia has a healthy and growing startup ecosystem which is overflowing with opportunities and ideas.

But there's a shortage of seed investors willing to back companies at this critical stage.

That's why we exist.

We're thematic investors on the lookout for market-shaking, ambitious products that can change the world.

We believe to transform the industries of today we need to invest in the people creating the products of tomorrow

Early-stage businesses face unique challenges.

That's why the Tidal Team offers more than money.

We dig deep to help our founders find their footing.

We bring operational and business expertise to help you with critical firsts - like hiring, product strategy, market readiness and more.

We'll stay up late with you to sweat the code, get up the next day to strategise expansion, and shepherd you back on track when needed.

We're there for the big steers and the small manoeuvres, to help you find your own footing to grow.
