Fast and decisive, we don’t have the constraints of most venture capital funds which have broader remits and obligations to their investors and limited partners.

We leverage extensive local and international networks to help establish and promote the companies in which we invest, connecting them to resources that will fuel their growth.

Our remit is broad, spanning all health technology and sciences with some specific areas of interest in digital health, immunology, oncology, microbial resistance, and the microbiome.

Our Values

Tenmile is driven by a set of values

Humility

Be vulnerable, take risks to trust others.

Courage and Determination

NEGU – we never ever give up.

Empowerment

Go to your leader for advice, not permission.

Enthusiasm

Be the most positive person in the room.

Family

Support each other, always be kind.

Frugality

Think of ways we can do things better, faster, cheaper, safer.

Generating Ideas

Always be on the lookout for breakthroughs.

Integrity

Do what you say you’re going to do.

Safety

Look out for your mates and yourself.

Stretch Targets

Always be uncomfortable with your level of challenge.

DIVERSITY

Diverse management teams make good investments. For every investment we make, we seek to understand the differential impact of a product or service by gender. We actively support female founders and encourage female participation in board and executive roles, in line with our company values.

In conjunction with Tattarang, we are thrilled to be a corporate partner in Women in Leadership Development (WiLD), a program providing Australian women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) with the qualifications, skills and networks needed to attain senior leadership and board positions.

ESG

At Tenmile we not only consider the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks and opportunities associated with each investment, but we also encourage and support our investees to improve their ESG risk management and develop more sustainable business practices.

To assess overall performance of potential investees, ESG factors are considered (in addition to financial performance) at the first stage of the investment lifecycle and formally at investment decision stage. This informs our ongoing investment strategy, including active monitoring, management and reporting.

For our earliest stage companies and founders, we can offer advice on sustainability and ESG opportunities, so they are incorporated from the beginning.

Tenmile pool on the Ashburton River, in Western Australia, is a permanent and reliable source of clean water which has supported people and wildlife for millennia. A fitting name for an organisation that will support Australia’s most innovative entrepreneurs and impactful health ideas with reliable capital.
