Instaclustr was founded in Canberra in 2013, initially bootstrapped by co-founders Peter Lilley and Doug Stuart following the exit of their prior company, Stratsec, to BAE Systems in 2011.
The company is headquartered in Canberra with US regional headquarters situated in Redwood City, California. The CEO, Peter Nichol, and co-founders, Ben Bromhead and Adam Zegelin, are based in California.
