Damien Petty

Founder & CEO

Damien is the founder and CEO of Fundsquire. He is driven by a desire to help start-ups scale- whether that be via Fundsquire’s products or through connecting other founders with resources and networks.

Damien founded Fundsquire in 2016 after noting a gap in the market for funding products for pre-revenue and early stage start-ups. He enjoys using technology to solve business challenges in new ways; both for Fundsquire and his customers. He brings to Fundsquire extensive funding experience through FIFO Capital and corporate finance experience with Deutsche Bank in London and AGL in Melbourne.

Outside of work Damien is a keen traveller, sports fan and wine collector. He could be the only person in Melbourne to own a wifi and app enabled bbq for cooking up a Sunday feast.
