We Invest, Raise Capital and Sell Innovative Companies

We back founders to help them build their vision, secure market share, and make a difference to the world. 

We’ve Been There & Done It!

We have built companies from scratch, raised millions in funding, scaled the business and then sold to larger acquirers. We know what it takes to build a serious business.

We’re Investors Who Raise Money

We know the venture capital and private equity industry because we not only raise capital from them but we are also investors ourselves.

We Work On Success

No Success, No Fee! We only get paid our success fee if we raise capital. We do not charge any monthly fees and will never have hidden fees.

We have done it!

The Shape Capital team is industry seasoned, comprising experienced corporate professionals and entrepreneurs who have successfully taken companies from start up, to scale and exit.

We have an innate understanding of the challenges of growing and shaping successful companies and we add value through strategic advice, providing access to capital and an M&A platform which maximises your value.

Our head office is based at 101 Collins Street in Melbourne.
