The fundamental purpose of Growth Point Agribusiness is two fold

  • to help realise the dreams of leading edge business owners by guiding the business growth, exit and capital transaction processes.
  • to discover, assess, derisk and prepare opportunities and projects for investors, investment and joint ventures.

We are a specialised team of passionate, committed and visionary professionals devoted to customising the value proposition of businesses so that it makes the most sense in the mind of those who you seek support from, and seek to provide support, so as to reap the maximum reward for the project in the marketplace.

The people who work with us have a focus on three core steps ...

Having an innovation focus
Innovation Communication Impactful Having a process for connecting with clarity
Creating an impactful outcome

Collectively we work at the middle point - that point of connection.

At the innovation point are individuals and businesses with ideas, IP and businesses that require "investment" of networks, ideas, structures, and more to enable a bigger future to be enabled.

  • You have an opportunity based around IP, formal or informal, and are seeking to enable the "project" to achieve its full potential.
  • Your need to have the project investment and investor ready. Remember being an investor isn't just about money.
  • You need to have your project at a stage that has value and delivers value to a pathway for growth.

At the impactful point are customers, clients, joint venture partners and investors. Our role is to ensure that opportunities are well prepared for you to receive value from the relationship and process being undertaken.

  • You are seeking to discover innovation, IP, formal or informal, that you can match to existing businesses or to support an investment strategy for ongoing capital growth.
  • Your need to have the project investment and investor ready. Remember being an investor isn't just about money.
  • You need to have your project at a stage that has value and delivers value to a pathway for growth.

Our approach is fundamentally simple –

  • to utilise our collective intellectual capital and networks to identify commercial opportunities for your project;
  • to partner with highly motivated partners;
  • to deliver rapid strategic and operational improvements across your business and project; all with the objective of achieving a step change in business growth and value generation.

In brief, we’re about building more powerful business propositions, so that the true value of your business opportunity is able to be developed, and how to best best position it in the marketplace to receive it.

Our point of difference

Growth Point Agribusiness is not just your typical business development or corporate facilitatory firm. Rather than being just a straight fee for service offering, we also seek to work with companies that we can also invest into. This ensures that there is a strong alignment between us.

So rather than just working with anyone who will pay us, we are much more selective with the clients we take on.
We specifically seek to work with and invest into companies who meet some of the following criteria:

  • Proven businesses with quality management
  • Willingness to push for change to create a bigger future for the business, the staff, the management and the owners.
  • Scalable business opportunity with significant potential value uplift within the medium long term
  • Capital raising to support a clear growth and payback strategy

For you the client, this means that we are more committed to the process and working with you on a long term basis to create value for the existing shareholders.

For those seeking to source businesses to invest into, acquire or complete joint venture relationships our role is to filter out those that are not ready, most likley won't be ready and who need to get their "duckls in a row" before they connect with you. Our team have been on both sides of these processes, and our role is one where we seek for each party to deliver and receive value. We are recognised for achieving fair and equitable outcomes, locally and internationally, and take pride in the way our negotiation framework delivers to all concerned.

Our sectors of focus

When you work with us you have access to 4 distinct advantages

Specialisation

Our services are not just a department or subsidiary of another main unrelated discipline or professional service. Growth Point Agribusiness was established to provide business development, strategic facilitation and consulting, capital raising, and private placement services.

Practical Experience

There is no substitute for practical experience. Theory is fine but in today’s business climate a practical approach is essential. Our partners, and associates all have many years of practical ‘hands on’ experience.

Since commencing business we have maintained a strict policy that our clients should have the additional benefit of knowledge not found in textbooks – knowledge which can only be gained through experience working in the industry and which can minimise the risk and enhance the success of any undertaking.

Practical Outcomes.

Verbose reports and complex solutions associated with meaningless jargon and padding are of little use. We have a policy of working in a straightforward manner, which can be easily understood and easily applied.

Wide Range of Contacts

Having worked with businesses, individuals and organisations throughout Australia and Internationally we have hundreds of contacts. If we need the services of any out-of- the-ordinary skills, we can usually locate such within 48 hours.


Clients are guaranteed a fresh perspective and a healthy dose of authenticity in the communication we have, and an honesty in the accountability called for.

You will find it easy dealing with us. We pride ourselves on our flexibility, our ability to come to grips with concepts and ideas and a solid grasp of the language, and you may be interested in what others say about working with us.

If what we offer here connects with you then make contact and we can discuss possibilities.
