We seek to invest in early stage, promising companies where we may be the lead investor and can additionally provide investees with advisory services, mentoring and access to our network in order to earn increases to our equity stake.
NATURE OF PORTFOLIO HOLDINGS AND ASSOCIATED RISKS
The nature of our portfolio holdings is in three main verticals. Though they are primarily early stage companies, and therefore may have significant risk but at the same time, they have the ability to grow quickly and outperform. Currently, we are focused on three main verticals for targeted investments.
Our Resource Incubation vertical will pursue a diversified portfolio of resource investments with an emphasis on the precious-metal and battery-metal sectors. We are focused on investing in district scale plays with high optionality and maximum exposure to rising markets. The resource components of our portfolio are primarily brown fields projects with the ability to be commercialized within 2-3 years.
Our Artificial Intelligence (“A.I.”) vertical will focus on disruptive data science technologies. Machine Learning and Neuro Networks have been at the forefront of value creation in many industries. We believe that it is necessary to have exposure to companies pioneering A.I./Machine Learning technologies into new sectors.
Our third vertical will focus on Blockchain Assets. We have formed an advisor group of outside consultants to help with due diligence and deal flow relating to potential Blockchain Investments. In this regard, we have incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary named Blockamoto.io Corp (which name pays tribute to the inventor of blockchain, Satoshi Nakamoto). Blockamoto.io Corp will build a diverse portfolio of global Blockchain assets.
These three verticals represent standalone unique value propositions and as developing companies, our holdings are susceptible to risks related to execution, growth and other typical risk factors. However, we do, and from time to time, take an active role in the business of our investees through the provision of strategic advice, board representation and/or other means, that helps reduce our investment risks.
HOW WE MONITOR AND EVALUATE OUR PORTFOLIO
We take a very active role in our investees, ranging from board seats to advisory, mentoring and networking, which allows us to monitor and evaluate them on a very consistent basis. Each company has very clearly articulated goals and milestones they are expected to achieve. Their rate of success or failure at achieving these milestones plays a significant role in evaluating our continued involvement with them.
THE TYPICAL LENGTH OF EACH INVESTMENT
We anticipate an investment period in each new company between 2-5 years. However, given the rapid growth nature of our high tech , we acknowledge the fact that some may achieve liquidity events or successful exits much faster.
