Scalare Partners appoints Carolyn Breeze as CEO

Scalare Partners is delighted to announce that Carolyn Breeze has been appointed to the new role of CEO of the business.

As a highly experienced executive leader with more than 20 years’ experience in the fintech, e-commerce and technology sectors, Carolyn Breeze is recognised for driving innovation and commercial success for businesses while championing diversity and development of the early-stage ecosystem in Australia. She joins Scalare from Zepto, where she was Chief Commercial Officer, and prior to that held senior roles at GoCardless, PayPal, Braintree and eBay.

Nick Roberts, Founding Partner at Scalare has welcomed the appointment of Carolyn.

"Scalare Partners has grown rapidly over the past three years, having backed 22 game-changing technology companies with both investment and our unique hands-on support model. We have exciting plans in the coming months to build on our position in the market to attract and support more exceptional founders and technology disruptors from diverse backgrounds alongside our existing portfolio.

We have been working with Carolyn as a trusted advisor to the Scalare community and the timing could not be better to bring in such a dynamic, well connected and respected leader to take us to this next level and deliver on a shared vision of continued innovation and growth.”

Carolyn says: “Having been an advisor to the Scalare community for the past 12 months, joining the business felt like a natural fit. Scalare’s vision to build a diverse and inclusive community of founders, investor and advisors directly aligns with my values.

It is the perfect merging of my two worlds: combining my experience as a commercial leader scaling and running commercial organisations, with my passion for investing in and supporting startups in the Australian community and beyond."

Carolyn continues "I look forward to building on Scalare’s success by supporting more emerging tech startups and leveraging the amazing network of advisors and directors to accelerate the businesses currently in the portfolio. As part of our vision to drive innovation we’re looking to form new partnerships to help early-stage founders access capital and customers through corporate channels.

One of my first goals over the next few months is diving into the Scalare portfolio, getting to know each of our technology innovators and sharing more about their startup journeys.”
