Belay Capital is an Australian based early growth stage Private Equity Manager
We seek out businesses with an operating profit of between $5 - $20 million p.a. and/or exceptional revenue growth. We look for business with exceptional management in an industry that is experiencing strong tail winds. Our investment can assist businesses through succession planning, pre IPO funding, organic and acquisition expansion, management buy-outs/buy-ins or public-to-private transition.
We take a collaborative approach to investing, both with the business we invest in, as well as with our investment partners. We seek to develop strong relationships with founders and managers to deliver value and growth. We always aim to provide support to management where we can add or introduce value, without encroaching on any managers day to day operational expertise. Our investment approach is flexible, we invest both directly, or co-invest and will take either a minority or majority interest.
Opportunities for Business Owners and Managers
We are always on the lookout for good businesses and good people.
Our goal is to invest in businesses looking for growth capital or managers who have identified transition opportunities within their organisation.
We understand the importance of ensuring those making daily decisions are incentivised appropriately and we have experience in structuring transactions so that management are appropriately rewarded.
If you own or work within a business looking for capital or change, we look forward to hearing from you.
