Start-up investments

Turn brilliant entrepreneurial ideas into a brilliant business.

Have you got an amazing business idea, but wish you had guidance on how to bring it to life? Carbon Group can help.

We understand the challenges and processes you’re going through, and the passion you feel about successfully launching your business. How do we know? Because we have walked the path you’re on. We are business owners ourselves, we have navigated the challenges of launching and growing a new business, including the challenges of raising capital to support our big ideas. We’re active in our local business community and thrive on seeing new ventures succeed.

One of the key things that entrepreneurs can benefit from is being surrounded by mentors who understand the daily challenges and various knockbacks that start-up business owners go through. Carbon Group is the single destination for business owners to access the core services you need to grow your business, increase profitability, minimise tax, and ultimately: Succeed.

We’re excited by the opportunity to form strong relationships with like-minded entrepreneurs and join you on your journey to achieve business success. We know capital is tight in the early days and for the right opportunities we are willing to exchange a selection of our services for equity (sweat equity).

Having equity in your business means we are hungry to see success as much as you are, so we’re there with you every step of the way on your business journey. We’re here to give your business the best start by providing the capital or services you need to kick-start your venture.

We’re always excited to hear fresh ideas with high growth potential, so if you think your business idea ticks those boxes, we’d love to hear your pitch.

Got a great idea?We'd love to hear it.

We are on the look out for different opportunities, including:
• Those with a valuation lower than $2m,
• Investments where we have an opportunity to take on at least 5% of equity,
• Opportunities to offer value through services, mentoring or board representation.
