Beames Capital

Beames Capital is a private equity investment firm.

We invest in many sectors but have a passion for startups that empower people in the gig economy to get the work they want and manage the work they get.

We were founded in 2008 and have invested in companies at Seed, IPO bookbuild, and Series A rounds, in Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, UK, and Europe.

Successful startups are not formed in isolation.

About

Where do we invest?

We focus on Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, UK, and Europe.

Who do we invest in?

We invest in many sectors but have a passion for startups that empower people in the gig economy to get the work they want and manage the work they get.

How much do we invest?

We invest at the Seed, IPO bookbuild, and Series A rounds. We typically look at companies raising AUD $200K to $2M.

Best way to pitch us your idea?

There is no need to jump us at an event with an 'elevator pitch'. Get in touch through our contact page to organise a time to talk us through your idea. We will do it in a prepared, non-hyped, and considered way to ensure your message gets across and we get our questions answered.

How we help

Founder Network

We are quite selective on who we invest in but once we do we invite all Founders to join others at private events to network, learn, and leverage off of others. We like to hold Founder dinners, investor roadshows, business growth trips, and more.

Regional Expansion

We co-invest with local investors to tap local expertise, open new networks, share trusted vendors, and help ensure a smooth landing for an incoming 'landing party'.

Recruiting

Our networks connect us with trusted, known, and experienced people across all markets we invest in. As such we can give a leg-up on recruitment in new markets, saving a mountain of time and money.

Expertise

We can help with everything from product development, to technical strategy, to growth hacking techniques. We've been there and done that, mostly, and have the resources at hand.

Network

Our mentor programme supports and connects you with the people you need in order to grow your business. We work with seasoned and proven entrepreneurs ensuring they pass on to you what they know.

Fundraising

We invest knowing there will most likely be multiple raising rounds. We have the experience and network to generate pitch data, arrange and manage roadshows, and close the rounds as they happen.

Are you looking for investment?

Startups

Are you looking for investment? Here you will find everything you need to know about our investment philosophy, what we look for in founders, products, teams and markets.

World Class Teams

To back you, we have to believe that you're better placed than anyone else in the world to succeed in your chosen area. Why do you care about the problem and solution more than anyone else? What authentic connection do you have with your chosen market? Most of all we're looking for the classic entrepreneurial DNA, those with an uncanny knack of getting things done with very few resources under chaotic conditions.

Products That Scale

We have a particular focus on startups that empower people in the gig economy to get the work they want and manage the work they get. We like businesses that are taking advantage of digital marketing and sales, where the sales cycle is short and/or revenue is recurring. We're not very keen on businesses which rely on direct sales, and which need to set up sales teams.

Global Ambition

We're looking for businesses who are attacking large global markets. Your customers should not know or care that you're Australian. Customers buy because they love your product and not because you hire sales people.

Metrics

We invest at the Seed, IPO bookbuild, and Series A rounds. We typically look at companies raising AUD $200K to $2M. We look for business plans that show market-tested acceptance to your solution and recurring revenue projections, preferably in multiple markets.

We're only getting started.

Companies

We look far and wide for the best, most ambitious Founders. We're incredibly proud of our companies.
