How do I accelerate my growth?

September 2020

Partnering with a Private Equity firm could help you grow your business and outperform your market. As one of Australia’s oldest private equity firms, we’ve been helping businesses accelerate their growth for over three decades – read more here.

We like to help by bringing more than just money to the table. Drawing on our pool of institutional knowledge, we take businesses to the next level by:

  • Developing a market strategy with a clear path to capture opportunities that are ripe for the taking, 
  • Making successful value-adding acquisitions that could have otherwise been out of your reach,
  • Bolstering the management team with the recruitment of high-performing candidates, and input from our panel of subject matter experts to tweak your roadmap as situations change, and
  • Utilising our playbook to put key foundational pillars in place (such as the right systems and processes) required to support the accelerated growth trajectory.

From refining the sales and marketing strategy, to implementing a new, fit-for-purpose, IT system organisation-wide, to launching into new markets, or acquiring assets in an industry consolidation play, we can help you, and guide you, to overcome challenges and achieve your business goals in a sustainable way.

You can read more about our partnership with Junior Adventures Group which grew from a Victoria and NSW-focused before and after-school care provider into the largest player globally here, and about Adelaide-based SILK Laser & Skin Clinics which grew from a 12 clinic network to over 50 clinics nationally in just 18 months here.
