Giant Leap is Australia's first venture capital fund which is 100% dedicated to investing in exceptional, rapidly scalable impact businesses.  We are investing $10 million into businesses that blend financial returns with deep social and environmental impact.

Giant Leap is backed by leading Australian funds manager, Impact Investment Group, which manages over $400 million in assets.  It is bolstered by Venture Partners (seasoned entrepreneurs and early-stage investors) and guided by Advisors (with early-stage tech and start-up experience, and who've led venture capital investments across the world). 

We believe that investing in businesses that do good is simply good business.
