Growth partnership

(3-10 years)


Before we partner

Once you submit your application, we’ll carefully assess whether we’re an appropriate funding partner for where you’re headed. We’ll agree on investment terms and discuss initial exit options, and then disperse your funds. The full investment process takes 6-10 weeks.

If it’s not a good fit, we will support you to explore more suitable funding options.

During the partnership

Once we partner, we’ll work with you to assemble a Board (if necessary), and appoint a Chairperson to deliver on the growth plan. The Fund will also take a seat on the board to allow us full visibility of the business.

During the partnership, further investments can be proposed and assessed on individual merit.

Concluding the

ABGF offers patient, not permanent capital. We ensure complete alignment on exit expectations from day one, and remain open and honest from beginning to end.
