Guide on creating an investment project

1. Add investment project details

Tell investors about your investment project:

  • Describe your investment opportunity sufficiently for potential investors to understand the project and why you are seeking external funds of investment.
  • Articulate your investor proposition. This is your opportunity to share your story and your vision to an engaged investor audience.
  • Provide specific information in relation to the investment project – corporate entity/ownership, ABN / ACN, trading names investment value, investment type/sector and region,
  • Describe whether or not the investment project has an indigenous involvement and/or engagement.
  • Upload quality images and video link if you have them.
  • Provide location details (optional) so we can put it on a map.
  • Provide primary contact details to receive potential investor enquiries.Upload any other project information that you want potential investors to download that supports your investor proposition or "investment pitch".

2. State the impact and alignment of your project to WA investment strategies

When you create your Investment Project you will need to provide details on how it aligns with WA State Governments business sentiment and investment strategies – for example, the impact on jobs, tourism and the Western Australian economy.

3. Submit your investment project for review

Your investment project will be reviewed by our panel to ensure your investment opportunity is an "investment ready" project and satisfies our guidelines and approval process.

Investment ready means that the investment proponent has a clearly articulated business and/or project plan which demonstrates:

  • project feasibility and delivery, including risk management.
  • the strength, experience, capabilities and capacity to execute the proposed project;
  • a growth plan, and how that growth will be funded; and
  • how the investment proponent will need to be in the correct business structure.

3. Submit your project for review

We will review your Project Brief and work with you to make sure it is ready for investors.

4. Approval and listing

We communicate with you via email as you create, save, submit and revise your investment opportunity. Our team may contact you directly during the review and revision process. We will always confirm by email after your investment project has been approved by us for listing.

By registering an investment opportunity on the website, you agree to the Terms and Conditions and acknowledge that you have read and agree to the Terms and Conditions, Disclaimer, Privacy and Copyright policies that are available on the Site.
