scaling private and public

our approach to partnership.

  • People White
    Founders & CEOs
    We back and support management teams in growing their businesses. This can take many forms — from a passive long-term supportive shareholder to more actively supporting at the board level. We think it is prudent for management and founders to take some of their equity off the table.
  • Teamwork+culture White
    We look for a defined high-performance culture, with teams who see culture as a critical strategic priority in their scaling journey.
  • Board+leadership White
    We look to help and support great leadership, not replace it. We work best with leadership teams and owners that just can’t imagine doing anything else. We want our leadership teams to continue to search for excellence and a mindset that ensures they are always looking to do things better.
  • Type Of Business White
    Type of Business
    We're open to Portfolio Companies in any industry. While we are industry agnostic, we have a more established track record and experience with technology, consumer, and healthcare companies, and particularly the intersection of these three sectors.
  • Size Of Business White
    Size of Business
    We typically invest in companies with greater than $75 million revenue, but for those companies not yet at that scale but with big aspirations, we would still love to hear from you. We’re always happy to try and help you on your scaling journey where we can, and love building relationships with ambitious founders and executives.
  • Growth White
    We help businesses who are looking to build a much bigger business over the long term — who aspire to revenue growth of more than 20% per annum. We’re about long-term, sustainable results for the benefit of all shareholders not short term profit maximisation or acquisition-led growth.
  • Reward White
    Investment Size
    Our investments per business scale from $75 to $300 million. Our funding structure is as flexible as your business needs. We always make sure the management, founders, and board members have significant shareholdings.
  • Exit Approach White
    Exit Approach
    We invest over the long term, with no defined exit time on the investment’s life. Our single pool of capital has no 'fund life', structually enabling us to be supportive over very long periods of time.
  • Regions White
    We are not geographically constrained. We’re proven in helping businesses grow globally and have invested around the world.
  • Governance White
    We don't require a board seat, but do value high-performing board and governance structures. TDM is often actively involved in board construction and participation. Board members should be passionate about the business’s mission and align themselves with shareholders by also owning significant equity.
