Flexible capital, with you in control.

The Australian Business Growth Fund™ (ABGF) was developed with Australian SMEs in mind. For businesses looking to raise capital, we provide a unique alternative to bank lending and private equity funding. We provide the growth capital you need to realise your ambition, without relinquishing control of what you’ve built.

We’ll inject $5-$15million of capital into your growth-ready business for a minority stake of up to 49%.

Agile in our investment and flexible in our operations, we work in partnership with our investee companies to arrive at a structure that’s mutually beneficial and built to last.

In addition to providing capital investment, we connect you to our talent network of business experts, growth strategists, board members and seasoned entrepreneurs, who can provide advice and guidance throughout the partnership.

ABGF Icon_Realistic Growth@2x
Realistic growth plan

Traditional private equity investment pushes for aggressive growth plans and short-term results. ABGF operates a SME-first approach, based on realistic growth plans and modest return expectations.

In fulfilling our vision, we are backing Australian businesses that are leading the way in solving some of our nation’s biggest challenges, while accelerating their growth. This means more jobs, more economic growth and more opportunities for a thriving future.
