The Financial Times, Nikkei Asia and Statista rank Lakeba one of Australia’s fastest growing companies 

02 June 2021 – LAKEBA officially joins the ranks of Australia’s fastest growing companies. The ranking is qualified by Nikkei Asia, the Financial Times and Statista.  

Lakeba is the only venture catalyst firm to be ranked. Joining other high-growth companies in architecture, construction, ecommerce, energy, financial services, fintech, gaming, health, retail and technology; amongst other sectors. 

Giuseppe Porcelli, CEO of Lakeba, says: “Some might accuse us of our unfair advantage, given we’re in the very sectors that the other fast-growing companies are in. Our shareholders, on the other hand, recognise it as our very unique business philosophy.” 

Lakeba’s fast growth stems from fabricating several businesses under one roof. Using centralised resources for conceiving, creating and commercialising 17 (currently) digital ventures.  

Lakeba’s AI determines the frictions that cripple business and society, particularly the ones that can be solved with technology. The business and technology teams at Lakeba then engineer the start-ups that fix these problems. These fledgling businesses then evolve into scale-ups through Lakeba’s partnerships and commercial teams co-creating and collaborating with sector leaders, including EY, Microsoft, Mirvac, NewsCorp and Stockland, amongst others. 

This unique model established 360Dgrees, AirCrypto, BRICKLET, Deals4Sport, ezidox, EziFin, EziLoan, EziTECH, ntick8, Paid By Coins, Prophetico, Quixxi, SHELFIE, Titlexchange and Verimoto as successful businesses in less than eight years. All engineered by Lakeba. 

AirCrypto, Deals4Sport and Paid By Coins have been exited by Lakeba. With several additional businesses already in development. 

“As the ventures are maturing, the net asset value of the portfolio is becoming very, very interesting;” commented a spokes person for Altor Alpha Fund. 

Australia’s Fastest Growing Companies ranking is determined from the FT Asia-Pacific High Growth Companies 2021 ranking. A list of 500 companies in the Asia-Pacific region that have achieved the highest compound annual growth in revenues between 2016 and 2019. 

The ranking is created through a complex procedure. Through research in company databases and other public sources, Statista identified tens of thousands of companies in the Asia-Pacific region as potential candidates for the ranking.  

Lakeba ( is a privately held global business builder. Its portfolio consists of 15 businesses, with 12 in production and three exited. Lakeba conceives their opportunities, create their operational models, and commercialise them into mature revenue and profit-generating companies.   

Founded in 2013 and awarded Microsoft Gold Partnership status in 2018, The Financial Times recognised Lakeba as an Asia Pacific High Growth Company in 2020 and in 2021.   

Lakeba builds from its headquarters in Sydney, Australia and its offices in India, Italy, the UK and the US. With a team of 160 specialists in capital funding, coding, financial management, marketing, operations, public relations, risk management and, of course, technology.
