We believe now is the best time to be investing in clean tech to help Australia’s energy transition towards net zero emissions.
We already have a diverse portfolio of market-leading sustainable ecosystem companies that we have either founded and grown from the ground up or invested in at an early stage. We are now focused on finding, nurturing and growing other complementary sustainability innovation companies that are solving real-world renewable energy and electric mobility problems.
Unlike conventional VC funds, we don’t charge any management or performance fees, as we are investing in parallel with you, sharing the risks and rewards with you. We are also currently ESIC (Early Stage Innovation Company) eligible, so you will get the 20% tax offset and zero capital gains for holding between 1-10 years if you are an eligible ESIC investor.

Every investment we make and company we choose to add-value to must have a positive sustainable energy aspect and be innovative in either their technology or business model. This is the only way we’ll both maximize our positive impact on the enviroment and acheive the highest capital growth for you our investors.
