We will invest in prerevenue startup ventures with compelling product concepts and market opportunities, and exceptional management teams with strong track records of successful execution of business plans.
We create value for our investors in four ways:

2.) our due diligence process which entails indepth evaluation of business plans and financial projections, and extensive meetings with company management to assess their capabilities;
3.) our disciplined investment process which is based on four core principles: (1) coinvestment with principals and financial sponsors; (2) compelling business opportunity and business plan; (3) strong management team; and (4) clear growth catalysts and exit strategy; and
4.) postinvestment ongoing close interaction with management to strengthen business plans, identify partnership opportunities, and provide contacts and references which assist the company in achieving its business objectives.
