Albert has helped founders build businesses that matter at Telstra Ventures for the last six years.
In a past life, he co-founded an on-demand food delivery service in Sydney. For his sins, Albert was an investment banker at Goldman Sachs for almost 5 years where he successfully avoided sleeping (and covered Technology, Media and Telecommunications, executing numerous transactions – from multibillion-dollar mergers to sales to IPOs). Albert started off as a corporate lawyer, giving him rudimentary legal ninja skills.
He has a keen sense for unconventional ideas that end up working. At university, he co-founded the Young Entrepreneurs Society, where he dressed up as a large bear and hi-fived students at Orientation Week to get new members. It worked! Albert spent years investing for a start-up funds management firm that grew to $3B AUM, so he knows what a small, passionate team can accomplish with ingenuity and lots of pizza.
