About this Program
Scale is a female focused angel investor network. We were founded in Melbourne in March 2013 inspired by the US based organisation Golden Seeds.
Our Investment Focus
We require companies to fulfil the following qualifying criteria to be considered by Scale Angels:
i. Female founder or woman at the C level with significant equity and influence. We believe businesses that value gender diverse leadership teams achieve higher returns.
ii. Raising $50,000 to $500,000 capital from Scale. Typically we will lead early stage rounds with valuations of less than $2m. We will consider joining syndicates for later, larger rounds.
iii. A scalable product with proprietary features or channels to market that provide barriers to entry for competition and a business model with potential to generate $20m revenues in 5 years. If the business is pre revenue, a product roadmap reflecting identified client input.
iv. A commitment to achieving an exit for Scale Angels via a trade sale, MBO or PE exit within 5 years and the potential to realise 10x returns for Scale Angels.
