Our investment approach can be summed up into 4I: Identify, Invest, Integrate, Innovate.
First, we will look out for interesting, up and coming new businesses and industries, and then identify companies within the industry that have a hands-on management team and good growth potential.
Once we are satisfied by our due diligence, we will invest our time, our energy and our finances into the business.
