In a return to our OG series, David shares his journey from bootstrapping to a successful exit and helping the next generation of Fintech founders through Centauri Ventures.
Along with Stuart Grover and Nicole Grover, David was the co-founder of Look Who's Charging ("LWC"). LWC's technology was adopted by every major banking group in Australia and tech giants like Apple.
LWC's service touched >70% of the Australian population and the business processed 8x the volume of transactions of Visa, Mastercard and EFTPOS combined (>4bn a month). LWC was sold to Experian PLC (FTSE 100 company) and David left the business at the end of 2021.
Since leaving LWC, David has set up a venture fund, Centauri Ventures, which has made over a dozen direct investments primarily in early-stage high-growth companies (portfolio).
In addition, David is the Founder of Helios Technologies, a technology-driven company working on a number of projects to help drive the transition to clean energy including myenergyguide.com.au, solarisedenergy.com and hems.energy.
David has also recently become a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
