Peter Towers

Peter Towers was the COMET (Commercialising Emerging Technology), Business Adviser for Central, North Queensland and the Northern Territory from 2001 to 2011. During that time, he worked with approximately 60 companies with this Australian government programme, which developed new technology that they wished to commercialise.

Investing With A Difference


We have conducted various mentoring and training assignments with accountancy businesses to introduce the team to the concept of offering a broader range of commercial services to business clients.


Company Director Training Courses have been presented on behalf of AusIndustry in various locations in Queensland.


Training courses have been presented on the role of a director/committee member of not-for-profits, charities and sporting organisations in various locations of Queensland.


We have developed a due diligence process to assist companies, located anywhere in Australia, in the assessment process for Early Stage Innovation Company status.  This relates to determining whether the company passes two of the three tests, namely “Early Stage Test”, “Gateway Test” and the “Principles Based Test”.

We assist Directors to determine eligibility for the Early Stage Innovation Company status by undertaking a due diligence assessment review and to prepare a file of supporting information for submission to potential investors and ultimately the Australian Taxation Office.

We have developed a business process to assist companies that are interested in raising capital as Crowd Sourced Funding Equity Raising Companies.  This will include a full awareness program on the requirements of the legislation, relative to the preparation of a Crowd Sourced Funding Offer Document and ensuring that the company directors are fully aware of the duties, responsibilities and powers of the Crowd Sourced Funding Intermediary appointed by the company directors.

We assist companies to determine whether they comply with the eligibility requirements to be classified as a Crowd Sourced Funding Company and thus eligible to raise up to $5m per annum (if required) from the public.

Towers Business Development can assist businesses wanting to grow by offering a range of services from coaching and mentoring to managerial and financial development of your business, through to applying for government grants (if required and if you’re eligible) to assist your business to be “investment ready” so that you could obtain capital (to assist in growing your business) from investors, business angels, friends, customers, business associates and venture capitalists. 

We are able to assist businesses in the journey from innovation to investment readiness relating to:

  • Research and Development Systems
  • Accelerating Commercialisation Grant Application Assistance

  • Early Stage Innovation Company Due Diligence
  • Crowd Sourced Funding Company eligibility to be able to raise capital
  • Preparation of Business Plans
  • Preparation of Strategic Plans
  • Preparation of Budgets and Cashflow Forecasts
  • Preparation of Business Valuations and Share Price Determination
  • Information Memorandum
  • Crowd Sourced Funding Offer Document

  • Briefing on Crowd Sourced Funding Intermediaries' Role

  • Introduction to Crowd Sourced Funding Intermediaries

  • Investment Pitch Mentoring and Coaching
  • Assistance in organising investment pitches for companies to obtain your business growth funding from investors, business angels, friends and venture capitalists.

We will have a complimentary preliminary meeting with a prospective client and, if we are both agreeable, will then submit a written proposal and quotation.
