We say that we’re not just a facilitator.
As investors managing a portfolio of some companies, we spend our time looking at potential companies with substantial economic contribution not only domestically but also internationally, to see how we can bring value and to invest in and continue to create, develop, and support those companies with passionate inventors and entrepreneurs.
What is at the core that makes us a different kind of Partner? We’ve boiled it down to these five reasons.
