Commitment to Local Employment
In an era of cost-cutting and offshoring of employment and capabilities, Scale Facilitation® is proud to have made a purposeful mandate to its portfolio companies that operations, management and key-decision making must be retained in Australia and the United States of America.
What historically were mere legal agreements capturing the specifics of the intellectual property they covered are now new companies set up for success. It is not lost on our team that each of the new portfolio companies we create presents an opportunity to create employment in the countries and communities in which they operate.
In June 2021 we opened our Australian Innovation office housing a number of our portfolio companies and their employees. With companies now registered in all Australian states and territories and multiple U.S. states we anticipate more office openings and growing local employment through 2021/2022 and beyond.
