We know the best people to help founders are other founders and seasoned startup leaders. Our community programs are designed to connect you to the powerful Blackbird network and help you build your startup right from the beginning.
Blackbird is where talented startups operators come to find their next role in one of our portfolio companies and invest in their careers, while plugging into the collective Blackbird community. Wherever you want to take your career next, our outcome driven programs will help you get here.
Level up, connect, and invest alongside a community of investors connecting to idea-stage founders through Blackbird’s Giants mentoring community and our Flock program, combining an incredible network of peers, training and exclusive deal flow to help you build your investor muscle.
The Blackbird Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Blackbird. Through our commitment to Pledge 1%, we will give 1% of our Carry and Management Fees to the Blackbird Foundation.
Our flagship startups festival returns to Auckland in 2023 with a new venue, new program and a magical collection of speakers, performers, artists and inventors we can’t wait to share with you. Join us as we present the stories and ideas from the best founders, and use these to inspire a whole new generation.
