Early Stage Investor

In essence the key concept here, the take-home message is, if you’re looking to raise capital, you need to be considering your ESIC status. What does that look like?

As we mention there’s three concepts. The key concept in terms of accelerated capital raising, the way to quickly raise capital, is to be ESIC ready. What we’ve done at ESIC Hub is created three concepts:

You’ll be ESIC ready that means that you’re ready to go and raise capital and engage in informed discussions with informed serious investors. We have investors connected at the hub that are looking for very good investment opportunities. The starting point is that they need companies that are ESIC compliant or ESIC ready….

So, we are now getting down to some detail and I’m glad for the question. Founders are potentially eligible as an ESIC investor; however, there are some rules, as you would expect around this stuff.

An ESIC investor, so a person contributing new capital into a company, can’t own more than 30% of that company to qualify for these ESIC benefits. So if you contributed capital and you owned less than 30%, as a founder, that is well and truly considered an eligible investment.

You have raised a very interesting question and that is, what is this ESIC stuff about?

ESIC is a dynamic status. It’s measured at a point in time and that point in time is when you issue shares. So if you guys are thinking about issuing share, you need to be ESIC at each time you issue shares, so it’s not a static status in that sense. It’s all in your circumstance, you would have to be ESIC on 30 June, your company that you’re investing in, and on 1 July. And they could be totally different outcomes. You could be one and not the other, not the one, and then the other. So it’s very much dependent on these circumstances on whether you’re ESIC or not.

The new capital-raising regime in Australia is whether or not you are an early stage innovation company and that’s obviously a long word we’ve abbreviated that to be an ESIC.  At ESIC Hub what we’re doing is connecting serious innovators with serious investors. So we are providing an end-to-end solution for early stage companies looking for capital raising and investors in the new environment that we’re working within from the 1st of July.

The investment framework that the investors are now looking at is this investment world. It started on the 1st of July, it’s very early days, you’re going to start seeing a greater engagement and I guess chatting around this concept about that the significance is of the ESCI world. It’s in place, it had bi-partisan support, and it’s the new world for raising capital and the new investment framework for early stage companies.

The question came about what the tax breaks look like for an investor and I’m sure some of you guys potentially look at investment as well and they are significant. We’ve built a tax saving estimator so your parents, people who are looking to invest in your vehicle could be eligible for these tax breaks so I would encourage you to refer them to this website, there is a bar here where you can look at what your proposed level of investment is as an investor and you can play with this bar and say look…. ‘I want to invest $100,000 in my venture that’s been presented to me’ and it will automatically work out what some of those tax benefits are.
