Our collective task?

To add large-scale value to Australian inventions, innovations, intellectual property and transformative technologies, and to get them to market – collaboratively and profitably.

Why?

To make the world better for all.

How?

Together, we stand on five legs:

  • We source ideas, inventions, intellectual property and innovations from you, us, other intellectual property creators and entrepreneurs, and from within larger corporations
  • We collaboratively resource and fund them, and get them totally market ready
  • We link the 4 i-s – of ideas, inventions, intellectual property and innovations–globally with well-resourced, high capability enterprises
  • We collaboratively take these innovations to the world – while sharing the risk, and return.
  • We use a three horizons framework to kick start our thinking and acting

Illustrative domains where we work:

  • areas where different industries collide – e.g. logistics, health, information technology, the digital world
  • areas where traditional industries interface and integrate – e.g. connected vehicles, smart machines, robotics, artificial intelligence, telecommunications
  • transforming industries – e.g. traditional manufacturing, distribution, broking, time-based consulting, bricks and mortar retailing, the sharing economy
  • traditional industries going digital, mobile, and on-line – e.g. education, retail, media, gaming, group buying
  • life services – e.g. health, well-being, health-care, ageing, disability services, mental health, neuroscience, brain-heart-mind, brain mapping, mind sciences
  • applied medical research – e.g. biotech, health informatics
  • information rich industries – e.g. data mining, big data, consulting, mentoring, training, coaching
  • industries that must innovate – e.g. banking, financial services, hedge funds, insurance, venture capital, agriculture
  • creation of a unique Australian innovation ecology, different from the Silicon Valley–Venture Capital model – e.g. R&D, Angel Funding, Venture Banking, entrepreneurial mentoring, incubators, accelerators….

Where?

  • Our marketing focus is progressively Melbourne, Australia, the US, Asia, Europe, the rest of the world.

Core business model

At the Venture Bank, for each venture we create a unique, dynamic, comprehensive, business model – which becomes the map of how each business, or IP portfolio, adds value to the world, and makes money, in its chosen market place.

Together, we create this map from 10 core building blocks – a unique, worthwhile business Purpose, then the 9-step Business Canvas developed by Alex Osterwalder.

As we create the 10-block business model, wherever we find a fixed industry or corporate ‘given’, we explore how together we might change that given. So, typically, each customized business model yields us multiple business innovations.

Managing up the innovation

Whenever an existing company, or group of companies wants to go public, it prepares through an intensive and extensive Interim Public Offering – or I.P.O. To manage this entire process it sets up a steering board of directors – which eventually forms the nucleus of the public company corporate board.

Equally, at the Venture Bank, as we go through all the steps to productize, monetize and commercialize any innovation, we appoint a CEO, and set up a Strategic Innovation Board, with the requisite talent. skills and experience to steer the entire commercialization process.

Sweet spot

On occasions we work just with unproven ideas with high potential. Or with scarcely-developed technology or intellectual property.

However, mainly at the Venture Bank, our sweet spot is where ‘8o+%’ of the IP or technology has been developed, and the market niche and potential clients identified. Maybe trial sales or real sales are in the wind.

The potential to scale seems to be there, but there’s lots of uncertainty about, say funds, talent, resources, or about the vision, strategies and business models for getting to market.

Or some of these elements are in insufficient or inadequate supply. It’s in these situations that the Venture Bank can add the most value.
