Is your project investment ready?

Can I list my project if seeking partners or anchor clients?

Who can list projects?
Any business or organisation that has a South Australian based project can list a project, provided the investment will contribute to the economic growth of South Australia.
Can I remain anonymous when listing my project?

Do I have to be based in South Australia to list a project or is it just the project that has to be in South Australia?

How do people get in touch with my company – are they moderated before coming to the company to avoid time wasters?
Your project will be listed in the public domain and, if you have not chosen to remain anonymous, your contact details will be available and potential investors can contact you directly, without involvement from the Department for Trade and Investment. If your project is anonymous, an investor must login and request to find out more about your project, including your company and contact details. The Department for Trade and Investment moderates these requests, however investor bona fides are not normally checked.
What about intellectual property protection if I’m searching for investment for a certain product(s)?
You should always seek professional advice prior to listing projects if you have intellectual property or commercial-in-confidence queries or concerns. Project listing instructions ask that you do not upload sensitive commercial information.
Can I list multiple projects on the site?
Yes, if the projects are in South Australia.
How long will my project remain ‘live’?
While projects will be reviewed regularly, projects can remain until an investment outcome is achieved, or the project owner wishes to remove the listing, or the Department for Trade and Investment removes the project.
What other support is provided to me?
