“Andrea and Ian Gardiner and Jelix’s investors, could not have had a more powerful positive impact on StorReduce’s trajectory. Their stellar reputation and investment into us helped others to trust us and led to enterprise sales and further investment by other valuable investors. Their game changing introductions ultimately led to Amazon Web Services selecting us as one of four worldwide beta partner companies for the S3IA cloud storage platform, becoming one of Google’s eight launch companies for its Coldline cloud platform and the first software ever to be resold by Western Digital – the largest data storage company in the world. Plus, they are easy and fun to deal with. We could not recommend them more highly to other startups.”

Through their extensive network, tagSpace has been introduced to dozens of companies and individuals across Australia and the USA for both investment and strategic partnerships. From a founder’s perspective I cannot express enough the appreciation and gratitude I have for Andrea and Ian Gardiners’ support, counsel and guidance. Andrea is a person of integrity and strikes the perfect balance between doing what’s right for her investors and entrepreneurs. As a startup entrepreneur, if you’re looking for some truly smart money to grow your business in Australia, this should be your first port of call.”
