It is intended to support our reach into the United States of America, assist us facilitate banking requirements and allow us to engage USA based project clients.

We are currently working to consolidate an Ardent Group alongside our partners at Avid, who are working to establish a regulated Fund, with both parties centralised in Dubai, UAE. We expect to conclude such business by February 2019. This will become our main office and the main licensor for the Ardent Partners network.
Our team consists of two Directors, three Senior Managers, three administration level staff and three core contractors who deliver qualified and experienced expertise to the internal operation and growth of the group, as well as the advice, contracting, consultation and resulting works developed in conjunction with a project's specific management team, our partners and our funding contacts.
Ardent are a motivated and capable funding facilitator and commercial resource. Our geographical focus is on the regions otherwise described as APEC / ASEAN and PIF economies, which include but are not limited to: New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, the United States and Canada.
Projects we accept can be privately held, or public works of Government, or privately held whereby Government is a contractor, supplier or purchaser by agreement. We facilitate larger scale projects with a minimum value of USD$20 million dollars, and we do not limit the level of funding that we may agree to arrange, inject or qualify.
“Green tech”, “environmental” and “humanitarian” are words we use to describe our core project focus and they are our areas of specialty. Projects involved in biotechnology, food science, innovations that provide environmental benefits, educate local people into skilled labour etc are our priority. We may also be interested in assisting with funds to contribute or project manage disaster rebuild efforts.
Our expertise does not extend to publicly listed companies. However, we have contacts in that field throughout the world and would be happy to make a referral on your behalf. Please do not make applications if you are not a serious and experienced entrepreneur, innovator or associate, as funds application requires that the persons guiding and governing a project be scrutinised in as much depth as the project itself regarding criteria and documentation.
If you would like to discuss your project funding requirements with one of our team, you may direct your enquiry to one of the persons detailed under our “team profile” or the “contact us” section of this website. Please read the project criteria page before making contact.
