This is a focus which we believe is underpinned by the global drivers of demand for new technology:
Communication networks meet the demand for voice and data communication as well as the convergence with digital media content platforms and devices
Ageing demographics and health fears drive demand for medical applications
Physical or cyber-security and terrorism threats drive demand for security technology
- Environmental awareness has heightened the need for sustainable solutions to many problems from waste to energy
- Squeezed corporate budgets have increased the focus on enhancing efficiency and reducing costs through the use of technology
We look for companies that meet our investment criteria: patentable, differentiated technology with strong IP; clearly identified addressable markets; scalable business models; attractive valuations; and above all strong management teams.
At Harwell Capital, we look for established businesses with exciting technologies meeting these criteria, but above all we visit companies and meet the people behind them. We back management teams with both vision and the single-minded focus to deliver results.
