We like to find and make investments in large, fast moving markets where technology trends create an environment suited for disruption by emerging companies.
Compelling Growth Characteristics
We invest at the growth equity stage in companies with a defined business model, proven value proposition, and customer traction through revenue. We believe this is the inflection point of value creation in high growth companies.
The team will focus on companies that are positioned at the forefronts of their markets, with the ability to become #1 or #2 in their specific market sectors.
Top Tier Management / Partnership Focus
We will invest in and build leadership teams with the vision, passion and experience to drive growth in rapidly changing markets. Through our history, we have preferred to partner with founders and management to help them achieve their goals.
Post Investment Value Add

We have years of experience identifying M&A targets and have worked with management in negotiating transactions as well as sourcing and establishing partnerships.
