What is the aim of this fund?
"The Fund seeks to invest in and provide support for technology enabled businesses"
Rajeev Saxena, Velocity Capital Advisors
The dynamics of the technology market have been transformed over the past decade. The advent of the digital economy has given innovative start-ups the ability to disrupt the way well-established industries operate, with the potential to rapidly undermine entrenched businesses and quickly achieve remarkable valuations. It is a time of opportunity for innovative companies with the products and ideas to challenge the way traditional businesses operate.
The Investment Consultant aims to exploit this opportunity, appraising potential investments not just for the traditional business qualities of strong management, robust operations and risk management, but also for dynamic attributes that flourish in the digital economy and technology environment, namely: innovation, scalability, agility and speed to market. The Investment Consultant will present to the Investment Manager opportunities to invest in start–up and early stage businesses that exhibit these characteristics.
