Forming the future of steel

At BlueScopeX™, we exist

To identify, inspire and invest in early-stage companies that will help shape the future of our industry and communities.

Steel stands strong at the heart of society. It is one of the strongest, most durable and versatile materials that exists on this planet. Our customers and communities are relying on us to drive sustainability of the industry and built environment – global decarbonisation, renewable energy transition and sustainable outcomes.

This is not a problem we can solve alone. We bring extraordinary teams together in the transformation of breakthrough ideas into reality.

This is why BlueScopeX™ has been formed.

Our mission

To identify new ideas and support extraordinary teams in the transformation of those ideas into reality.

This will build positive momentum across steel, construction and related industries, to help deliver a more sustainable future for us all; and for generations to come.

Deep Knowledge & Industry Expertise

We have a deep understanding of the industries in which we operate and unrivaled insight into the challenges and opportunities that exist.

Networks & Connections
