Beckon Capital is a growth equity focused investment manager.
Growth equity occupies a middle-ground between traditional early-stage venture capital and private equity. It invests in established enterprises needing capital for:
Venture capital provides funding for markets and business models that aren’t yet proven, while private equity funding is typically deployed to acquire entire companies that are more mature.
Growth Equity can free up SMEs and local built environment projects from the restrictions, pressure and cashflow implications of debt financing, the most common source of funding in these segments. With the right partner, Growth Equity encourages unconstrained thinking to ignite the real potential of a business - and deliver sustainable financial returns.
Growth Equity is known and proven globally compared to Australia. Beckon is one of Australia’s earliest fund managers to offer Growth Equity.
The British Growth Fund kicked off in 2011, and the Canadian Growth Fund in 2017. They invest in small to medium-sized enterprises and now boast impressive balance sheets.
The Australian Federal Government established a Business Growth Fund in October 2020.
