 " When written in Chinese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters. One represents danger,  and the other represents opportunity. "
                 --John Fitzgerald Kennedy

We provide Executive and Board assistance to emerging, growth and established companies in advanced technology driven products and services. We work with management, investors and the Board as an additional resource to achieve their goals.  Creating quality companies and investments, and harvesting them at the proper time, is our focus. 

Good opportunities are not just identified, they are created. We know, we’ve done it. We have:

  • Helped found  companies out of R&D labs and been the first outside investors or advisors, raised substantial capital for them, recruited management, and served as a member of several Boards.
  • Completed financings of over $2 billion in equity capital and over $2 billion in acquisitions. All are in technology, over 100 deals – from “stuffers” to “beachheads”.
  • On behalf of associated funds, made over a dozen direct investments producing over 10X returns.
  • Played an active management role at the request of Boards in several public and “Remediation” turnarounds, restructurings and M&A.
  • Advised on new technology markets, investment and M&A strategies over several years to major and emerging corporations in electronics, software, internet services, broadband communications infrastructure, instrumentation, security, optics, materials and alternative energy products and services.
