All of our projects are geared towards ultimately providing attractive financial returns to our investors and are timed for optimal “exits” within 4-6 years for business ventures.
We believe that not only is venture capital and private equity compatible with economic and social development of the regions we work in, but that is a key driver in ensuring sustainable growth and long-term economic prosperity of our target countries and communities, just as the PE and VC industry was instrumental in developing the western economies over the latest several decades. Every project that we engage in seeks to be socially beneficial, yet strongly anchored on a for-profit nature and aimed at generating high investment returns.
By ensuring that our investors and local communities are regarded as the key “winners” in every project, we are promoting a sustainable development model of a vitreous cycle of continued economic development aided by internal and external capital inflows to new ventures, corporate turnarounds, and growth of existing commercial enterprises.
We work for our investors and see ourselves as not only stewards of their capital, but as having a duty to maximize the upside scenario for all of our stakeholders. Our operational model is closely aligned to that principle, with most of our own incentives driven by carried interest (a portion of gains on successfully “exited” projects) rather than management fees. Having shared interest as our investors in selecting deals that generate maximum investment returns, while featuring acceptable levels of risk and net positive economic and social benefits, allows us to engage in management decisions that maximize the net value creation in the projects that we engage in.
