Norton Rose Fulbright acts for Right Click Capital on the establishment of tech innovation fund

Business March 7, 2017

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has acted for Right Click Capital on the launch of its Growth Fund, the firm’s second venture capital investment fund. The fund is structured as an early stage venture capital limited partnership (ESVCLP) and is aimed at investing in early stage technology companies.

Right Click Capital is an investment firm with a successful track record in identifying and investing in high-growth internet and technology business across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. Right Click Capital’s strength lies in its core values of being founder-led, data-driven and boasting a global network (such as its membership in the Draper Venture Network).

Right Click Capital has deep industry expertise and operational experience, evident in its previous investments such as hipages, DesignCrowd, RecruitLoop, and the Sydney Seed Fund portfolio.

The Growth Fund will continue to focus on investing in early-stage technology companies and will build a diverse portfolio of high growth companies. Right Click Capital partners with founders from inception and beyond to help them build meaningful and enduring technology businesses.

The fund has already been supported by a number of experienced individual and institutional investors.

Norton Rose Fulbright lead partner Fadi Khoury commented:

“The fund looks to tap growing interest in technology and innovation investment opportunities. Investors may also benefit from recent regulatory and tax reforms benefitting this sector.”

Right Click Capital partner Benjamin Chong commented:

“We are excited to announce our second venture fund and have already attracted a lot of interest from both individual investors and institutional investors. It’s not just about achieving superior returns but gaining a greater exposure and knowledge of technology-based companies.”

“Norton Rose Fulbright has been a great partner for us as we have developed our fund.”

Norton Rose Fulbright technology and innovation team leader (Asia-Pacific) Nick Abrahams commented:

“For many years the team at Right Click Capital have been an important part of this country’s innovation ecosystem. We are delighted to have had the opportunity to assist them to create a fund to support great Australian tech companies.”
