We assist in developing profitable and sustainable models that break molds and create opportunity.

Founder’s Inspiration

Two quotes inspired me to found this firm:

“Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.” General George S. Patton

      • Inspirations come from a long list of people, places, influences and experience. My experience is rooted in mobile technology with a specialized focus on The Internet of Things and Machine to Machine (M2M) communications. Too often, I’ve seen subpar companies receive funding for a flawed business model and team and conversely, great people, companies and solutions that have lacked strategically applied capital, leadership and mentorship that stumble and eventually fail.

“Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.” Jack Welch

      • We believe in entrepreneurial CEO’s whose passion led them to form their companies in the first place. We work for our investors by remaining diligent and pragmatic with our selection of portfolio companies and deliver results through a disciplined long-term investment focus.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as the third wave in the development of the internet. The 1990s’ internet wave connected one billion users while the 2000s’ mobile wave connected another two billion. The IoT has the potential to connect 10 times as many (28 billion) “things” to the internet by 2020, ranging from bracelets to cars. Breakthroughs in the cost of sensors, processing power and bandwidth to connect devices are enabling ubiquitous connections right now. Smart products like smart watches and home based products are already gaining traction. The technical definition of The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects accessed through the internet. These objects contain embedded technology to interact with internal states or the external environment and when an object can sense and communicate, it changes how and where decisions are made, and who makes them.


Many factors are converging to make this an extraordinary time to invest in mobile. Network operators are aggressively upgrading their infrastructures to allow for faster data speeds and more reliable connections, while network architecture and systems are beginning to flatten. Smartphone penetration will continue to increase and soon consistently outpace global PC sales, while devices also become more sophisticated through features and technology such as wearable devices and sensors, intuitive next generation operating systems, modules, and related. Finally, the shift to an open app ecosystem has resulted in an explosion of high-quality content delivery across all devices.

Industrial Internet (IIoT)

IIoT refers Also known as the Industrial Internet, IIoT incorporates machine learning and big data technology, harnessing the sensor data, Machine-toMachine (M2M) communication and automation technologies that have existed in industrial settings for years. Devices or sensors relay event data to an application that can then make sense of it and apply it in a broad array of vertical markets such as healthcare, auto OEM, consumer electronics and retail. IIoT will play an ever-growing role due to the rapidly rising number of devices and the need for better risk reduction, error mitigation and safety.
