KPMG Australia’s High Growth Ventures practice will deliver founder performance programs for Taronga Ventures’ RealTechX Growth Program in 2020.
RealTechX is backed by the Australian Government and has attracted a diverse group of partners including Dexus, Lendlease, ISPT, Monash, UNSW, and CSIRO. It has been designed to meet the needs of later-stage real estate technology ventures, offering customer access, strategic capital and growth expertise.
KPMG High Growth Ventures will be responsible for the founder development portion of the RealTechX Growth Program. Based on latest scientific understanding of human performance, as well as an in-depth knowledge of the challenges facing fast growing businesses, the program will be tailored to focus on the real estate sector.
Amanda Price, Head of KPMG High Growth Ventures commented: “RealTech and PropTech have huge global potential, and Australia is well placed to play a major role in incubating new businesses in this space. We are excited to be teaming up with the Taronga Ventures team to support the founders entering the RealTechX program.”
“Our latest research found that the top challenges facing startups are talent, sales and capital. The programs we have developed have been designed to nurture the personal and professional growth of founders so they can achieve and sustain a high performing self, team and business. We will also connect these later-stage startups to the expertise that lies within KPMG to support their acceleration.
The founder portion of the 2020 RealtechX Growth Program will involve a series of workshops delivered by specialists from the KPMG High Growth Ventures team. Founders will also participate in a range of growth focused sessions, a five-day immersive mission to Singapore and be connected to investors, potential clients and partners.
Jonathan Hannam, Managing Partner at Taronga Ventures added, “Our focus with RealTechX was to bring together leading real estate market participants and deliver an industry-led, Government supported initiative, assisting high growth potential scale-up businesses with their expansion into new markets. We have been working with the KPMG High Growth Ventures team for over two years and the link between sustainable long term business success and founder well-being is clear. High Growth Ventures delivers a critical component of the RealTechX program, providing the founders of our participant businesses tools to help them manage the many challenges of scaling a business and ultimately delivering longer term success.”
