We actively invest capital and expertise in a wide range of organisations that are aligned with our values and goals, and where benchmark returns can be achieved.
Long-term active investors
Little Group has a number of active investment portfolios all of which share a common investment process and approach.
The centre of the process is a ‘do no harm’ investment thesis, meaning we do not invest in any company that derives the majority of its revenue from activities that would be considered not in the best interests of the community at large. This applies to all our investments whether they be venture capital or in the listed environment within Australia or globally.
We are long term investors who do intensive due diligence prior to investing and thereafter take an active interest in the investee companies by either taking a board seat in the case of venture investments or by meetings when appropriate in the case of listed companies.
Little Group today has a range of investments at differing stages of their business life cycle both in the listed and the venture capital environments and we are active in putting more capital to work both locally and within Asia Pacific.
With a view to nurturing progressive and scalable early stage Australian companies we are a co-founder of Skalata Ventures Pty Ltd (Skalata).
Skalata’s mission is to advance remarkable founders by bringing together business leaders, innovators, investors, universities, government and corporations to help create companies of the future. Generating competitive advantage and employment growth for the Australian economy.
Skalata partners with universities, the business community and government to provide promising early stage companies with access to funding, business development programs and networks. It has created Australia’s first fully integrated seed investment program designed to help early stage companies prepare to scale and grow into significant, sustainable and transformative businesses.
