Founders First

Welcome to VC where founders come first

Founder Spotlight

Matt Holme Founder of YouPay

“What we know for sure is the shopper is not always the payer. YouPay provides a sustainable alternative payment solution for kids and adults to live within their means. Our goal is to introduce YouPay to stores globally, and at this important early stage of our company, we couldn’t be more excited to be working with Sprint.”

Where we invest

We embrace extraordinary ideas from passionate founders who create companies that make a difference. Sprint provides startup funding to early and growth-stage technology companies across Australia. We’re not narrowly defined by silos.

Our portfolio will give you a sense of what attracts us. We usually start the conversation once you have a MVP, have sales traction and are retaining customers. Ready to reach out to Sprint?
