How We Work

Geelong Strong & Business Acquisitions International is Geelong founded.

We buy good quality, profitable businesses at fair prices, in the Geelong and surrounding areas. Our aim is to increase employment in the region. The best way to do that is to provide jobs in strong robust growing businesses. 

Not only do we buy businesses that are profitable, but we also invest heavily in technology, upgrading skills, get top-level knowledge and networks to support the businesses through the highs and lows of the current volatile economy with an aim to grow. 


We do not want to lose any more good businesses that have been built here to the recession, COVID, or inability to sell.

The Team

With over 60 high level professionals already commiting to be involved from across the globe and access to some of the best business minds in the country, we are working together to create, first employment within Geelong, then expand the concept across the world.
