STRATEGY

INVESTMENT FOCUS

We invest in highly-motivated, bright and passionate entrepreneurs — based in Silicon Valley or from the Baltics and Eastern Europe — developing proven technologies that will serve global markets. The companies will be incorporated in western jurisdictions. Our investment activities are focused in, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Internet Infrastructure & Services
  • Enterprise Software & Information Services
  • Digital Media
  • eCommerce
  • Mobile & Consumer Applications
  • Communications & Networking
  • Data Storage & Management

The best way to ensure that your idea or company gets the attention it deserves is to approach us with a referral from someone we know and trust. It’s often helpful to surround yourself with people on your board, in senior management positions or in key advisory roles who have established track records of success and relevant industry experience.

PROCESS

We receive many submissions each month and evaluate companies along the following criteria:

  1. Team
  2. Technology
  3. Market
  4. Financing

The best way to get your idea to stand out is to carefully think out and clearly demonstrate your thoughts regarding these areas in your proposal.

Team

Are you a superstar? Can you attract superstars? What have you done previously that has been a knockout success, business or technically? What is unique about your team’s background that will enable you to be successful? We require that some of your team be located in Eastern Europe.

Technology

What problem does your technology solve, and why is your approach unique and defensible? What fundamental advance does your technology demonstrate? What are the technical barriers to entry based upon your proposal that will work in your favor?

Market

What is the size of the market for your technology? Who are your competitors? How well funded are your competitors? What do your current customers say appeals to them and why?

Financing

How much will it require to get you to the major milestones in the evolution of your proposal? What milestones can a future financing be based upon by executing to your targeted plan? Our model focuses on early stage investing, primarily Series A.
