KPMG Enterprise Founder Program

KPMG Enterprise Founder Program

Designed to enhance the performance, wellbeing and purpose of venture backed founders.

Designed to enhance the performance, wellbeing and purpose of venture backed founders.

There are few pursuits in which individual leadership plays as critical a role as building a high-growth venture. A founder’s vision, ability to execute, communicate, lead and build culture, will make or break their startup.


Put simply: a high performance scale up, cannot exist without high performing founders and leaders.


In August 2018, KPMG High Growth Ventures released the Startup Founder Research which surveyed 70 VC-backed founders on wellness, stress levels and their limitations to success. The research revealed that founders are highly stressed, take little time to reset and struggle with some of the soft skills required to scale a business.

To address the issues raised in the report, KPMG High Growth Ventures designed a 2.5 day intensive program to enhance the performance, wellbeing and purpose of venture backed founders.

The facilitators include Rachael Neumann, Craig Davis, Michelle Duval, Phaedon Stough, Brad Couper and Scott Draper and Amanda Price from KPMG.

Through collaboration with Australia's leading VC firms, the participants for the first cohort include: Baraja, AgriWebb, TidyMe, AgriDigital, WORK180, Propeller Aero, DesignCrowd, Prospection and FluroSat.


During the program, founders will:

  • Learn simple practices to boost performance, improve leadership and elevate wellbeing.
  • Understand their communication and leadership bias and opportunities.
  • Develop a framework for building high performing teams.
  • Learn from founders who have scaled teams in the past and gain access to the tools, templates and knowledge to begin to hire the right talent that will transform their business.
  • Learn how to harness the power of customer feedback to unlock growth and drive their product roadmap.
  • Have the opportunity to work on their startup, rather than in it.
  • Leave with improved soft skills and awareness around human capital and culture.
  • Get back to their roots and reconnect with their why.
  • Illuminate their business blind spots.
  • Understand what sustained high performance looks like in their day-to-day.
