Venture Capital & Angel Investment Group

FirstGen Capital is a boutique Venture Capital and Angel Investment Group providing seed and early stage investment capital to start up businesses in Australia & New Zealand. Our mission is to invest in entrepreneurial teams with “first generation” technologies and business ideas which we believe have the potential to contribute to a socially connected and sustainable future.

Where We Invest…

Internet & Social Media

From Cloud Computing to Social Media, we seek to invest in start ups who possess a shared vision for bringing people closer and changing the way we connect with each other through the Web.

Clean Technology

From Renewable Energy to Value-Added Recycling, we seek to invest in start ups who are committed to reducing carbon emissions and conserving our natural resources for future generations.

Life Sciences

From Biotechnology to Medical Devices, we seek to invest in start ups with a focus on developing innovative technologies which make a positive impact on health and wellness in the community.

Our Investment Approach

As experienced Venture Capital investors we understand the different funding and development challenges start up ventures face. While some start ups require a significant investment in a key piece of technology others require capital to drive marketing and growth opportunities.

That’s why we’ve developed an investment model which allows us to partner with you where your business needs it most.

Venture Capital

As Venture Capital Partners we seek to invest up to $1M in capital in seed and early stage companies. As a privately held investment company we offer the scale of traditional venture captial funds with the funding flexibility of an Angel Investor.

Venture Technology

As Venture Technology Partners we offer you the skills, resources and technology required to develop your start ups online capabilities. From online software and website development through to the design and implementation of an online distribution channel we have the expertise and the resources to help turn your “Big Ideas” into a commercial reality. Deal structures are flexible and range from licensing agreements through to an equity stake in the business.

Over the course of the investment lifecycle FirstGen Capital can act as a funding partner, a technology partner or a combination of both.

Value Creation

Our investment approach is founded on actively engaging with our entrepreneurs and senior management teams. We focus on identifying and developing value creation opportunities within each of our portfolio companies across five core areas:

Team Building & Organisational Culture
Strategic Direction
Operational Excellence
Social Responsibility
Finance & Acquisition
It’s Time For You To Act

We want to hear from you if:
