Scale Australia has one purpose: to help the very best of Australia’s entrepreneurial talent to grow their businesses.
We search far and wide to seek out Australia's best and fairest, who have built market defining business models, in rapid growth markets.
Scale Up, not Start Up
Scale ups are businesses which have demonstrated significant market traction, and are at the point where capital is required for growth, not to just keep it alive.
Investing at this stage has a very high impact, enabling it to accelerate, enter new markets, and scale its sales and marketing activities to maximise returns.
Capital Preservation, with growth opportunities
A hybrid return profile enables investors to benefit from a predictable dividend like payment, whilst generating the exciting return profile of early stage businesses.
We combine a unique combination of investing criteria which enables us to select only the best-in-class opportunities.
This decade, is the decade of the business model. Technology will not define your business - your business model will.
