We believe in the power of the passionate entrepreneur – whether sitting in a modern office tower or a Silicon Valley garage – to change the world.

For our entrepreneurs and partners, we are patient investors and experienced operating executives who are not afraid to roll up our sleeves to help get things done. We bring our extensive industry and government networks to accelerate sales and strategic partnerships. We work as an extension of our companies while giving our entrepreneurs the flexibility to pursue their dreams.

We have seen the rapid growth of the sustainability and resource efficiency sectors and are focusing on high margin, capital efficient companies that are at the intersection of sustainability, smart phones, software and the internet. Resource efficient companies can include the following:

Energy Efficiency

Sharing Economy
Efficient Transportation and new mobility models
Power Storage and Water Management
Renewable Energy Generation
Internet-of-Things
Security

Cloud Computing & Big Data

We will also look beyond our traditional verticals into software solutions that have application across sectors in areas such as cloud computing, block chain, big data, security, and mobility.  While we’re focusing on areas such as energy, water and transportation, we will also be investing in companies that help provide greater efficiency and profitability in a broader set of vertical markets.
