The collaborative approach to investing – Dr Geoff Waring from Stoic Venture Capital

The VC Land Podcast connects you with some of the leading players in Australia’s growing venture capital (VC) market.

Hosted by news media and PR veteran, CEO of Mojo Media, Justin Kelly, we chat to leading VCs on how to get started, what it takes to build a successful business, how to overcome challenges, and advice for early stage businesses looking for funding.

In this episode, Justin speaks with principal of Stoic Venture Capital, Dr Geoff Waring. Stoic looks to provide seed investment into early stage, start-up businesses that have emerged from Australia’s booming university sector.

Prior to working in early stage financing, Geoff held academic positions at the Australian Graduate School of Management at the University of New South Wales, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Emory University and University of California-Los Angeles.

His idea for Stoic Ventures first emerged after he studied the overseas diamond market and how diamonds were sold.

In this episode, Dr Waring talks through Stoic’s unique collaborative approach to sourcing deal flow and investment opportunities, the sectors with the most potential upside, how to position founders for success and why Australia’s start up sector is on the rise.
