We know how tough it can be figuring out when it’s the right time to seek capital, and who to talk to. We help companies demystify the capital raising process, giving you the best chance of accessing the right investment, at the right time to help fund your international growth.

We work hard to put you in the best position to successfully raise capital. We work with companies that are internationalising or have international aspirations and potential; have a validated business model and demonstrate revenue, customer acquisition or lead investment and are actively seeking to raise capital in the next 6 – 12 months.

Our investment team assist companies who:

  • Are entering a growth phase – new markets or new products
  • Have capital requirements
  • Don’t understand how to go about raising capital or who to talk to
  • Are looking at acquisitions, mergers or divesting
  • Are working through shareholder alignment or succession/exit planning
  • Have pressure on their working capital and/or limitations from the banks 

How it works


Every business is different. That’s why our Investment team is completely flexible; we offer you support regardless of what capital-related challenges you’re facing. Our investment team work with you one-on-one to:

  • Provide clarity on your options to raise capital
  • Work with you to understand where you are at in the process
  • Stress test your proposition and highlight any gaps
  • Profile potential investors
  • Help to develop investor collateral
  • Connect you to international and/or domestic investors

Through working with our Investment Managers we’re confident you’ll be investment-ready. And what does that mean? You’ll be able to:

  • Articulate your investment proposition; not just your product story
  • Draw a clear capital roadmap – what you need, when, from who
  • Talk to your sustainable competitive advantage
  • Show a set of financials that tell the right story
  • Understand the importance of good leadership and sound governance structure
  • Have a clear investor profile and a plan of how to target those investors
