Innovation Fund (Fund I)

The OneVentures Innovation Fund is a $40M venture capital fund formed as an early stage venture capital Limited Partnership. This Fund was launched in 2010 with the Commonwealth Government committing $20M from its IIF programme and this funding matched by high net-worth wholesale investors.

Innovation and Growth Fund (Fund II)

The OneVentures Innovation and Growth Fund was launched in March 2014 with a target of $100M and reached that target in December 2015. Fund II is an early stage venture capital limited partnership backed entirely by Australian high net-worth wholesale investors.

Focusing on later stage (Series B and beyond) investments while still maintaining some investment activity in the earlier stage investments, Fund II is now screening investment opportunities where the experience of the OneVentures management team can be leveraged to accelerate value creation and company success.

We are currently looking for truly transformative companies to join our portfolio of innovative companies, if you think your company has what it takes, read our Application for Funding page and submit your application now.
