Our Investment Criteria Includes the Following:
- Proven Traction:
We look for companies that have already demonstrated early traction, such as generating revenue or acquiring customers, as a sign of product-market fit.
- Investment Size:
Angel investment round is typically small and the first external investment in a startup. We then offer follow-on funding to successful portfolio companies.
We typically invest in starts-ups seeking between $50k – $500k initial capital and can support follow up rounds for successful start-ups.
Pre-money valuation of up to $5 million

- Strong Founding Teams
We prioritise investing in companies with strong founding teams that possess the passion, drive, and expertise necessary to execute their vision and achieve success.
- Early-Stage Investment:
We focus on investing in early-stage companies, typically in seed or Series A rounds, to capture meaningful ownership at a reasonable valuation
- Geographic Focus
We focus on investing in companies based in the Hunter Region but will consider investing in other regions in Australia and internationally.
- Exit Strategy:
We expect companies to have a clear exit strategy in place with the goal of achieving at least a 10x return on our investment within 5-10 years.
