|Ongoing||Business Development Fund
The Business Development Fund (the Fund) is the Queensland Government’s $80 million angel and venture capital funding available to Queensland businesses. The intention of the Fund is to support the growth of innovative businesses and the creation of high-value jobs as well as attract both interstate and international investments in Queensland, thereby strengthening Queensland’s entrepreneurial and start-up eco-system.
The Fund may invest between $125,000 and $2.5 million (matched by the co-investor/s) in a Queensland business in order to turn ideas and innovations into a commercial reality.
Note, the Fund’s investment is a direct investment in the business, and is not a payment to the co-investor, a grant or a loan. Both the fund and co-investor are shareholders in the business. The Fund invests on the same equity terms as the co-investor.
