Deep Tech.

We focus exclusively on B2B markets with complex problems to solve, that build on engineering productivity and innovation, resulting in disruptive solutions that create an unfair competitive advantage.  Our specialisations include Cybersecurity, Big Data & Analytics, Cloud Infrastructure, AdTech, SaaS, and other Digital Enterprise areas. We like companies that solve problems for enterprises of any size, with efficient go-to-market models and the ambition to capture large global markets.

Europe.

Europe offers exceptional conditions for developing and scaling high-growth technology companies.  With some of the world’s leading academic institutions in the areas of deep tech, more software developers, at a lower cost base and higher retention than the US, coupled with large enterprise customers, and an inherent understanding of internationalisation, Europe is well positioned to foster the next generation of globally recognized deep tech companies.  We focus on geographies and cities we know primarily around the Atlantic Rim covering Spain, Portugal, France, UK, and Ireland.

Scale.

Building category leaders can be a complex journey but we’ve seen a simple pattern to scaling successfully: Develop. Globalize. Migrate. Exit. Our companies seek to productize their offering and validate their go-to-market approach with local and European enterprise clients. They then expand internationally applying a refined value proposition. If successful, they transform themselves into global companies that can span various markets, often migrating to Silicon Valley in order to upgrade their team, accelerate their growth, and seek an exit.

Together we can achieve bigger outcomes than initially imagined.

Disciplined Portfolio Management.

Our goal is to provide our investors with superior and predictable long-term returns on their capital. We achieve this by configuring diversified portfolios of technology-based ventures led by winners in their segments, by supporting those investments at a strategic level, and by allocating capital progressively and with rigor.
