The Goldsworthy Academy is a private family office that specializes in executive mentoring, business advisory services and private investment.
We chose the word Academy as a reference to new ideas, continuous learning, open mindedness, contemporary thinking, discipline in execution, global perspective and simple pragmatism.
It also reflects the collegial approach we practice with our clients and investee companies; whether it be working with senior executives or business owners in realizing their goals or providing investment capital and support to growing business ventures that are at the forefront of their field.
Success in today’s world of business and investing requires a dexterity of mindset, an understanding of the value drivers of a business, and a belief in managing for the long-term.
We believe that at the core of sustainable success is the paradigm of collaboration, investing in the commercialization of R&D, and having a workforce that is "fit-for-purpose". The levers of change expect nothing less.
Our investment decisions are based on appraising management capability, market strategy and potential, product differentiation and scalability, capital allocation and risk management.
Companies that are asset light, are aligned to the impetus of Industry 4.0, disciplined in financial management and execution, and offer identifiable symmetrical risk and reward will be considered.
All proposals are treated as commercial in confidence, with investment timeframes ranging from three to five years. Structure and quantum of investment is negotiated on a case by case basis.
