Blue Poppy Ventures

Seeding for success …investing in and supporting emerging entrepreneurs, small medium enterprises and startups in Australia and internationally

Are you looking for ways to take your business or startup to the next level?  Perhaps you have a dream of making much more of an impact on the world?  And/or maybe you have a business launch coming up?

Attracting funding and investors can be very difficult and there must be a match with personalities and investment preferences.  Sometimes they seem like invisible people, trying to get connected and pitching to investors, is very hit and miss.

Working alongside an investor with a supportive approach, highly developed international networks across many regions, workforce management and innovation capabilities, you have the opportunity to experience a different type of investor relationship.

The aim is to have a diverse investment portfolio, in a variety of countries, markets and industry sectors.

Leading the way in helping emerging entrepreneurs and startups, become successful, scalable and profitable businesses, who could operate locally, nationally and globally.

Investing in capability to expand capacity and skills, increasing productivity and reach, with sweat equity and funding.

This is open to all genders and all ages, youth and mature entrepreneurs, including home based businesses, providing products, services and experiences, underpinned by tapping into outsourced resources, growth and strategic networks.
