We know software and technology
We’re specialist investors in industry-specific software and technology businesses. We have decades of success growing technology businesses in these fields to make their mark on the world.
We choose sustainable growth over ‘growth at all costs’. We focus on unit economics and keep our eye on each company’s North Star during its growth life cycle. We’ll take your existing business practices and partnerships and help you enhance what you do, for greater impact. It’s about how we can use our 30 years of experience to help you better drive what you’re already doing. If we didn’t like your current direction, we wouldn’t invest in your company. We want your long-term employees to thrive — if we invest, we like your team.
Direct access to our founding family
David Teoh founded and grew TPG Telecom to become a leading Australian telecommunications provider. We offer direct access to David and to our experienced team of investors. It’s never about telling you what to do. It’s about our experts collaborating with you in an inclusive environment, building on the work you’ve done, growing what you love and making a difference.
Be an owner, feel like an owner
It’s important to us that you’re still at the wheel. We have well-developed playbooks that help manage and grow a business, but there’s no corporate styling. But you’re still in charge. You’ll be operating your business autonomously. We’re not a corporate who will look to replace or restructure your team, or discount your or their voice. You’ll feel empowered and supported, with our capital and team opening new possibilities.
Flexible, permanent capital
We invest to build businesses for the long term. We have no fixed timing to realise our investment. We don’t trade in and out of companies. We offer longevity and continuity, with constant access to resources and consultation. When you and your staff are confident in the stability of business ownership, we believe you can relax and get on with your most creative work.
We offer unrivaled access to offshore networks. Whether it’s expert advice from other leaders across different functional areas of business, or access to critical resources from offshore expansion, we’ll connect you to our strong and experienced pan-Asian and global networks.
Why work with Teoh Capital?
We Do Things Differently
- We’re flexible: Capital out, capital in, both majority and minority investments.
- We enable sellers to achieve a two stage exit in order to de-risk now while maximise their retained investment, the value of which we will help grow
- Our technological expertise drives value. It grows businesses. And it does that without the stress and bureaucracy of corporate models.
- Family-run, with decades of experience, we offer confidence, stability and consistency.
- What you see is what you get — we’re accountable only to ourselves, and the people making the investment and ongoing decisions are the same ones you work with in the years to come.
- Given our structure and funding base, we offer the highest certainty and transparency of anyone in the market in the execution of deals, and can expedite due diligence.
Comparison of Teoh Capital to other sources of capital
Here at Teoh Capital, we take a different approach from other providers of capital. We’re closely invested in you as a business. Importantly, we know that this extends far beyond simply providing finances and that it shouldn’t have to require handing over control of the business that you’ve nurtured and created success with so far.
Instead, we want to provide your business with a partnership experience that allows you to achieve your ambitions and grow your business into the next phase of its success. Whether that’s developing new products, reaching a wider audience for your brand or simply getting that push to go to the next level, David Teoh’s team can assist.
