Chris Milligan

Venture Partner

Chris Milligan is a shareholder, investor, and venture partner at Tribe Global Ventures.

Fresh out of university at QUT, Chris founded Adepto, a B2B SaaS HR platform. In 2015, Chris participated in an early version of Tribe’s UK mission and relocated to London five months later, raising a Seed round from UK investors and establishing Adepto in Europe. With teams in both Brisbane and London, Chris continued to scale Adepto, raising further capital and working with global customers, including PwC, Cisco, AECOM, and BAE Systems.

In 2019, Adepto was acquired by the US learning platform Degreed, where Chris joined the leadership team and supported a $140 million Series D.

Since leaving Degreed in 2022 and still based in London, Chris founded Konfir, an instant employment and income verification solution built on banking, payroll, and tax data. Having raised £3.6m in Pre-seed and Seed funding from UK angels and VCs, Konfir is on track to become the go-to solution for UK verifications.

Chris is a passionate supporter of Venture Capital and has invested in and advised over 15 early-stage tech companies in both Australia and overseas. He frequently visits Australia, blending his expertise and experience to support emerging entrepreneurs.
