AP Ventures Limited
AP Ventures Limited is an investment vehicle in which Afterpay Limited is the largest shareholder. We aim to create long term value for its shareholders through investing in high growth companies
What we do
AP Ventures provides high growth, scalable companies that have proven revenue models with access to capital and, where appropriate, Afterpay's experience, merchants and customers. Particular areas of interest includes retail innovation, consumer & finance, and data with a preference for businesses that are or can expand globally.
We target making investments of $10m+ and are interested in post revenue and later stage companies looking to scale. While not generally our focus, we may from time to time pursue early stage opportunities where there is a strong strategic rationale.
