The core objective of “Aginic Ventures” is to help design and build successful start-ups. We work alongside founders from the very beginning, starting with initial ideas, to market validation, testing, designing, and taking the product to the market.
“Aginic Ventures” is a preferred destination for tech and product lovers. We pride ourselves on collaborating with founders with purpose by designing and developing elegant products using the latest tech, and constantly challenging ourselves to think outside the box.
We have an awesome track record of start-up success - we know what we're doing and we have fun doing it. We are renowned in the Australian start-up scene for quality tech/data products and for being really supportive of our founders. You can get a feel for some of the start-ups we have helped evolve here: https://aginic.ventures/#portfolio
We are a closely connected team of 11, divided into three smaller, cross-functional squads.
Our core product squads are comprised of a product lead, a product designer, and two senior engineers located across Brisbane and Sydney.
“Aginic Ventures” is a work-family; our approach is fast-paced while being pretty relaxed and fun. Our vision is to be the #1 ventures studio/incubator that specialises in the development and commercialisation of data products globally.
We continually evolve, and, therefore, we wish to welcome like-minded people with solid skills and a passion for product development.
