Steve is an investor, a partner at TEN13, and you may also know him as one of the sharks from the show Shark Tank in Australia. His journey in entrepreneurship and investments began over 25 years ago when he started his first company in the telecommunications area. He sold his second business in 2010 and went on to become an investor. Currently, he has an existing portfolio of over 30 companies.
