Arena Mars - Technology innovators - Advancing technology to benefit people

Arena Mars helps technology innovators to scale, so that everyone benefits from the tech-driven economy of tomorrow.

We’ve all seen countless reports on how Australia, US, UK and Europe need to build better innovation ecosystems, foster entrepreneurship, and upskill populations.

Now is the time for action, so we’re putting our time, energy and funds into solving these national challenges.

Arena Mars helps technology innovators to scale, so that everyone benefits from the technology and economy of tomorrow.

We invest in, join Boards of and advise start-ups, and we work with leading VCs, universities and business schools to ensure the benefits of technology reach as many people as possible.

We have done this before: we have four exits between us, we’ve founded and scaled start-ups worldwide and we’ve held executive roles in major global businesses. Along the way we’ve been in the boardrooms and ministers’ offices of leading companies and governments in multiple countries, advising on people-centric technological change.

Our goal is to combine our knowledge, experience, network and passion as AI, automation and education rapidly change how people work.

We think this quote from Theodore Roosevelt says it all.

It is not the critic who counts, or those who point out how the strong stumble, or where the doers of deeds could have done better. 

The credit belongs to those who are in the arena, whose faces are marred by dust and sweat and blood. For there is no effort without error or shortcoming. 

But they who actually do the deeds, who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spend themselves in a worthy cause, who, at the best, know the triumphs of high achievement, and who, if they fail, at least fail whilst daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
