My guest for Ep161 of The Startup Playbook Podcast was the Partner at TEN13 VC, Steve Baxter.
Steve is best known for his role on TV as a “Shark” on Australia’s Shark Tank, but prior to this he had a highly successful career as an entrepreneur.
In this episode we cover his journey and lessons from his early career including him how he left high school at 15 to join the army, launch SE Net as a 24 year old in a highly competitive environment before selling the company to OzEmail in the year 2000 and much more!
We also dive deep into Steve’s main role as a Partner at TEN13 VC and discuss his investment approach and philosophy and the process behind it!
A big thank you to Pauline Fetaui and the team at RCL for hosting our event as well as our podcast partners for this episode.
