Bringing together the Australian and New Zealand venture community as it grows

Building on our experience hosting our annual venture capital unconference Venture Downunder, and utilising our key strengths of community building and event curation, we created Aurora to unite VCs across Australia and New Zealand. 

We don't focus on deal flow, we focus on building relationships.

What we offer

Rich conversations and community

We provide an intimate and relaxed environment for leaders from VC firms to have thoughtful conversations, and dynamic peer-driven discussions.

Rich conversations and community

Exclusive retreats

A 1-day, 1-night special off-site gathering hosted in a regional location, providing an opportunity for the community to come together, unwind, and network. 

Exclusive retreats

Venture Downunder

Great people and lots of opportunities for those conversations we don't get to have at any other events.
