What is Ventures?
Innovation is how Profusion began and it continues to be a central thread in the Profusion story. In 2019 we are turbocharging this by developing Ventures – our own incubator and innovation hub. Although innovation happens in our business every day, we’re exploring opportunities to help make and mould the companies and creations of the future.
Investing in the future
With our years of experience, we understand what it means
to apply tech into a business environment.
Data and AI
Through Ventures we’re already acting on the opportunities we’ve spied in the market, by inventing new products and businesses.
But we know we’re not the ones having all the best ideas. That’s why we’ll be incubating and investing in entrepreneurs who share their ingenious visions on using data and AI to serve people and brands.
We’ll tap into the inspired minds of our partners, clients and team to give these innovations the best chance of success. By raising a community of collaboration to shape notions and create networks to reach the market at scale, we’ll make a big difference. This is because a percentage of the profits from Ventures will directly fund our social impact foundation Profusion Cares.
“The most powerful transformations I’ve been involved in have been powered by a combination of people and products. For me, that’s how you make change happen – it’s not just about the great idea but the way you build a movement around it”
Natalie Cramp, managing director of Profusion Ventures
“In my mind, Ventures should almost be called entrepreneurial adventures. Collectively, we love building businesses, communities and teams. Personally, I revel in the collaborative journey of exploration, cultivating something from the seed of an idea, insight or shared imagination”
Darren Robson, CEO of Profusion
“I wouldn’t enjoy a world without creativity and innovation. Moving forward positively in life requires improvements, adjustments and sometimes wholesale new thinking. Sitting still or putting up with the status quo helps no one and, for me, is akin to death by a thousand cuts”
Russell Parsons, co-founder of Profusion
What can you expect from us? Ventures is a natural evolution of the Profusion journey. We have a lot of experience in the market and understand what it means to apply tech into a business environment. We’ve also been in the game a while – nearly 20 years in the tech space. We’ve been on the verge of failure at least three times and survived. That’s given us a lot of knowledge, especially having been through a couple of economic cycles.
Calling all entrepreneurs
We’re looking for people who are on the inside of an industry and see a problem. Imaginative people, tech, data and AI will help solve that issue – and it will have wider applications in other areas
