Gus Balbontin

Investor - Founder - Advisor

Born and bred in wild Patagonia, Gus never allowed his small town and humble beginnings get in the way of his big dreams. A healthy disrespect for authority and a severe case of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) landed him in Australia at the young age of 17. 


By the age of 22, he had dropped out of uni, hitchhiked South America, set up his first business and landed his dream job at Lonely Planet. Fast forward a few years and he was leading the company globally working with companies such as Google X, Nokia and Amazon on the latest technology, creative cultures and high performing teams. 


He is involved in the start up scene as a founder, investor and advisor and is on the board of Startup Victoria. He is one of the co-founders of the Creative Studio and Innovation agency behind NOW, he has recently launched Neu21 in Latin America and is an All Star Techstars mentor.
