We search for investment opportunities with sound management, a favorable external environment, and a proprietary technology or operating model.



We evaluate each team in terms of their:

  • Entrepreneurial Capabilities
  • Managerial Capabilities
  • Personal Character


Key elements of a favorable external environment include:

  • A market that offers major growth opportunity but which may be initially too small to attract significant competition from large established companies.
  • Cost effective distribution channels.
  • Markets without excessive price sensitivity

Proprietary Position

Companies that compete in technology intensive industries are best positioned when a vital, on-going research and development capability has produced advanced, enabling technology that can be maintained as a proprietary corporate asset through patent or trade secret protection.

Successful early-stage companies in the non-technology and service categories will require an innovative, insightful and market oriented strategy as an essential ingredient in their business plan.
