To bring more ground breaking technologies,
innovations and companies to market, faster, successfully and, deliver on the economic, social and investor returns they promise.
Australian thinking, research and innovation
leads the world, yet this inventiveness hasn't
translated into creating world leading companies.
We're here to change that by providing inventors, researchers, founders and universities with not just the capital they need, but with the support and entrepreneurial resources to
turn their work into the businesses of the future.
SCV IS DIFFERENT TO MOST EARLY STAGE VENTURE CAPITAL
We identify, fund and commercialise ground
breaking ideas, inventions, research and
applied technologies from leading
Australian universities and research labs.
Every university is commited to innovation but few have the resources and capabilities to consistently foster entrepreneurship and enable conversion of the R&D investment into lasting commercial outcomes.
WE PARTNER WITH UNIVERSITIES AT THE POINT OF INNOVATION
Uncover and accelerate the transformative technologies made possible by the $11B annual investment in Australian research.
We focus on creating businesses that lever the R&D investment and bring about the success stories and investor returns that drive lasting economic growth, attract talent, address social needs and build global businesses that support our regional and national interests.
Deep tech innovation and discovery based on long, well funded R&D cycles, creates a technology advantage that is hard to replicate and for which Australia is globally recognised.
We invest in business created from commercialisation of these innovations.
We are sector agnostic, driven by the thematics that arise from the core capabilities of our partner universities.

A hybrid private equity/venture capital model,

Create, Co-Create & Invest
has been designed with this requirement in mind.
