Maxine Minter

General Partner | Co Ventures


Maxine Minter


Maxine Minter has always been fascinated by two critical aspects of business: the fuel of early investment and the steering wheel of executive coaching. She is the founder and General Partner of Co Ventures, Australia's first venture fund led by a solo female GP, as well as the country's first dedicated pre-seed fund. Co Ventures aims to propel Australian founders building global companies from day one.

Maxine also founded Co Lab. The platform matches startup founders and CEOs with the world’s best executive coaches who have coached leadership teams at global giants like Notion, Linktree, Segment, and Plaid.

Her dual roles support her in closing the informational chasm between Australian startups and global investors while also helping startups navigate the complicated path of growth.

Before these ventures, Maxine was company-building and co-founding several startups and made her mark as an angel investor in both the United States and Australia. She has attended Stanford, Macquarie, Oxford, and Copenhagen Universities, and taught business-building courses at Stanford and Bond Universities, in addition to guest lecturing at various other institutions.
