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

 

Management
We evaluate each team in terms of their:

 • Entrepreneurial Capabilities
 • Managerial Capabilities
 • Personal Character


Market
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.
