Tara was born in Austria, grew up in Ireland, and after a year of traveling the world with her family, relocated to New Zealand. This unique international background has given Tara a global and “big picture” perspective which has proven useful in negotiating and closing Speedinvest’s international investment transactions.
Prior to joining Speedinvest, Tara worked as a commercial and corporate lawyer at a large national law firm in New Zealand with a particular focus on capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, as well as corporate structuring and governance. Tara advised a range of domestic and international companies and has experience dealing with New Zealand market regulators, such as the Takeovers Panel, Financial Markets Authority and the New Zealand Stock Exchange. She was involved in a number of private and public capital raisings, share purchase plans and stock exchange listings.
Tara returned to Vienna in early 2019 and has been applying her legal background and skills to Europe’s thriving startup scene ever since.
Outside of work, she loves to travel, try out the latest fitness trends, and explore local cafes and restaurants.
