The story so far

Giant Leap was launched in 2016 by The Impact Investment Group (IIG) as Australia’s first venture capital fund 100% dedicated to investing in impact startups.

Giant Leap was a collaboration between IIG, led by Will Richardson, and Small Giants, the family office of Danny Almagor OAM and Berry Liberman along with venture partners, Kylie Charlton representing Australian Impact Investments, Peter Cameron and Adam Milgrom who were also the Fund I’s cornerstone investors.

The inaugural advisors to Giant Leap were Danny Almagor, Bevan Clarke, Susan Wu, Mark Joiner and Alicia Darvall.

To date, Giant Leap has invested in over 25 companies that can deliver superior financial returns alongside real and measurable social and environmental benefits, and has consistently performed in the top quartile of funds of its vintage.

In 2021, Giant Leap spun out from IIG into a new independent entity solely focussed on Impact Venture Capital with IIG continuing to provide back-office support. It also started raising its second fund, Giant Leap Fund II.

Giant Leap is currently investing from Giant Leap Fund II and will continue its mission to back game-changing founders re-imagining industries and using business as a force for good.
