We are an investment engine with a difference. We invest in fabulous ideas and passionate entrepreneurs. We fund, partner and guide the efforts of budding business women and men and their businesses, to create great brands and great economic value.
And here’s how we are different. We prefer the old-fashioned, yet solid way of ‘creating value’ to the trendy, yet flaky idea of ‘creating valuation’. Because while we are here to do business, we wouldn’t ever take common sense out of the equation.
