About Richard

I am launching an innovative legal and professional services tech solution with an experienced IT/enterprise salesperson, who has years of experience as the Australian CEO/GM of various billion dollar IT companies.

On the side, I am the general counsel for a leading fintech company in Australia.

I previously worked as an M&A lawyer for a top tier law firm in Australia, and have extensive experience in advising venture capital firms and startups. I previously worked in operations at Blackbird Ventures, one of Australia's leading venture capital firms.

My co-founder and I are looking for a full-stack developer/programmer/product manager to join our operations as a co-founder.

Please feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn (, if you can't message me on CoFoundersLab.
