Our Approach

Reinventure exists at the third horizon of growth, focused on creating options in future businesses through venture investment and a strategic relationship with our largest limited partner, Westpac Banking Corporation.

With $150m to invest in FinTech and adjacent areas, we are uncovering, investing in and nurturing scalable early businesses that will be the future of the industry.

How We Work With Westpac

While Westpac is the largest investor in Reinventure Fund, alongside founders Danny Gilligan and Simon Cant, the fund is operated independently by Reinventure Group. This allows us to fully focus on helping our portfolio companies succeed and, with $150M in committed funds, we have the resources to continue investing and stay engaged with our portfolio companies as they grow.

Once we invest, our job is to add value to our ventures in the best way we can, both through our operational experience and networks, and unlocking maximum synergy values between the ventures and Westpac. Westpac is keen to understand emerging trends, acquire know-how from great entrepreneurs and co-create in areas that can benefit from the complementary skillsets both parties bring.
