Guy Franklin

Advisor @ Smart Paddock

I co-founded Australia’s longest running real time video streaming company (m-View) – which built the first live, mobile video streaming hardware and software system for cellular networks.
I then applied my start-up mindset to the corporate world joining Telstra, working to define and build their software developer program, API strategy, global software growth strategy and innovation & incubation methodology framework. I led software and design specialists building next generation growth businesses at Telstra Labs and advised startups in Telstra’s global Accelerator muru-D.
As Venture Partner at Skalata Ventures I provided investment and company development support in all aspects of business to ensure startups are Series A ready. I ensured portfolio companies were able to find product-market fit, develop growth engines and implement professional business processes and infrastructure as they prepared to scale and grow into significant, sustainable and transformative businesses.
I have a strong track record of developing and selling solutions across various industries and markets, including Government, Enterprise, SME and startups. I have broad industry exposure across Emergency Services, Industrial, Medical, Construction, Education and Agriculture.
