To make Quilpie Wellspring ‘investment ready’ requires a business case, with clear and attractive market value. Our hypothesis is the we can uncover the market value of the project by exploring the relationship between the Project Proponents and Project Beneficiaries in a deeper, systemic and more strategic way.
We will identify the level of funding or financing available from the private sector and design a financial model. The gap between the capital requirement and private funding will be funded by Government or philanthropic institutions. The mix of government-funded, private sector investment and philanthropic donations can be referred to as a blended capital stack. This model represents an approach where government funding is allocated to de-risk the project and encourage broader investment for the project.
