Blackbird is a venture capital fund based in Australia and New Zealand which seeks to invest in every type of technology from software to space, unified by the biggest of ambitions. They invest in pre-product and pre-revenue.

Generally, Blackbird's investment stage process are:

  • Applicants send a pitch deck.

Once these and any other questions are answered, they’ll hold an investment committee meeting, review all of the above and reach a final decision.
