Types of Funding
VENTURE CAPTIAL FUNDS
Includes seed and series a/b funding for equity in the business.
In return for capital to grow and scale the business, equity is taken up by the fund. The difference of us is that we are a close partner of the business and not just a funding source. Having access to experienced entrepreneurs with global scale up experience as part of the deal makes us stand out from other VCs.
VENTURE DEBT FUNDING
Funding designed to help founders access bridging funds to scale and grow, without equity considerations.
Relatively new to Australia, venture debt funding is more like a loan and the rates are generally lower than traditional sources of funding. Normally venture debt funding is combined into a traditional venture deal allowing greater flexibility for the start up to access liquidity without large portions of their equity being used.
A note about investing
Investing in early stage and later stage startups is risky and you need to go into every investment having assessed all the risks after conducting thorough and detailed due diligence.
Not every investment produces a return and that’s why we insist our investors become skilled up in the detailed methods and techniques of investing in early stage startups.
We suggest you seek external investment, legal and financial/tax advice for any investment being considered.
