About Investible

Investible’s journey started in 1998 when co-founders Creel Price and Trevor Folsom founded Blueprint Management Group. Over ten years, the pair faced all of the challenges of scaling a business head-on, exiting the business for $109 million in 2008.

The experience inspired Trevor to become active as an investor and advisor to growth companies, particularly in the technology sector. Creel dedicated his time to fostering entrepreneurship on a global scale, including developing the curriculum for the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship in South Africa - a contribution that inspired Sir Richard to refer to Creel as “the living, breathing definition of an entrepreneur” in his book Screw Business as Usual.

The cofounders reunited in 2010, combining Trevor’s investing pedigree and expertise with Creel’s entrepreneur development and education programs. This collaboration morphed to become Investible in 2014.

Today, Investible continues to build on its founders’ track record and commitment to supporting the entrepreneurial ecosystem. With offices in Australia and Singapore and a growing presence across South East Asia, we have built a network of successful entrepreneurs and investors who are committed to helping promising founders realise their true potential.
