Who is Squareknot Australia?

By providing access to deal flow, individuals are able to build portfolios of the companies where they identify opportunity. The Squareknot Community comprises investors, entrepreneurs, advisors, mentors and industry experts. 

While capital is important, we recognise the ability to leverage the resources of our members by way of making connections, opening commercial doors, providing guidance or adding weight to a board is invaluable to high growth companies.
