A Partnership Approach
Our business model is simple: we invest in and operate small and medium-sized enterprises, providing the support critical to realising great success. We help our partners develop, and to overcome inevitable growing pains and challenges along the way, never losing sight of the long term.
We are true partners. We find businesses that serve a real purpose within their industries and in society, but need our support to manoeuvre into sustained growth. We are not consultants who engage from the sidelines; we are hands-on investors– the Arowana team is always ready to roll up their sleeves and work in the trenches alongside management teams to overcome any challenge and develop thoughtful and creative solutions.
We value and respect the entrepreneurial spirit – in fact, we live by it. We are unique in that we truly know what it means to start, scale up and operate businesses, because we count among our team those who’ve done it.
Our perspective is distinctly global and cross-sector, from technology and finance, to leadership and data science, among many others. As a result, we are able to join the dots, exporting learnings from one industry to another.
We pair experience and instinct with rigorous in-depth, immersive research and analysis, allowing us to find opportunity for investment and operational value creation where others may not.
And we never lose sight. We understand that the work we do benefits more than the bottom line and we always consider the impact of our actions.
Businesses are people; although we’re able to make hard choices, we do so responsibly. We want to see businesses and economies grow in a sustainable way and in doing so making money for our partners and ourselves.
