INVESTMENT PROCESS

 
 

1. Attend Entrepreneur Office Hour
Entrepreneurs seeking investment, thinking about investment or purely wanting some ‘inside’ info around the investment process are welcome to attend ‘Entrepreneur Office Hour’, an informal session with plenty of opportunity to ask your burning investment questions. These sessions are not used for pitching for funding. Office Hours are held in both Melbourne and Sydney locations Please register at least 24 hours in advance below:

2. Submit an Application
Start the process by submitting an online application via Gust, a secure deal management software. We also request all applications include a short (60 – 90 second) video highlighting your value proposition and introducing yourself to the Scale network. All information remains with Scale without the express request or permission of the entrepreneur.

3. Present at Screening Session
Successful applicants are invited to a Screening Session hosted out of Melbourne. We bring up to eight successful applicants to this level of screening per investment cycle.

4. Present at Investor Forum
Following each Screening Session, our top three to four women entrepreneurs will then be invited to present at the Scale Investor Forum, held in both Sydney and Melbourne locations.

5. Due Diligence Process
In order to proceed to Due Diligence there will need to be a minimum threshold of investor interest met following pitches at the Investor Forums.

As a part of DD Scale will look to review, where applicable, historical financials and financial model, sales and marketing strategy, product road map, IP, management references and background checks, market opportunity, value proposition, business model, competition, material contracts, exit strategy and potential returns.

6. Deal Close
We aim to present and sign a term sheet at week four of Due Diligence and will move to finalise closing documentation and transfer funds to your company from here.

Please note: Admin and on-boarding fees associated with closing each deal will be invoiced upon completion of transaction. These fees are subject to final investment amount.
