INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

Where / How We Work Best

We work best with passionate entrepreneurs in a highly collaborative manner ....in the presence of opportunities to add substantial value through pre-seed/seed investments and advisory relationships, in accessing strategic/financial partners, in follow-on investing and fund raising, and in governance roles.  In short, the Asper Group helps entrepreneurs shape the idea, concept, and business model; find valuable teaming partners; attract investors; and guide the development:

 
  • Concept/business plan development, PoC/MVP piloting, revenue ramp/development

  • Pre-seed, seed and early equity round funding regimes

  • Participations in larger rounds ... when in advisory/governance roles

We focus on early-stage venture developments addressing e-commerce and marketplace platforms, mobile, and technology-enabled content businesses... especially those exploiting AI/Intelligent Apps, Immersive Experience, Image Recognition, Augmented Analytics, Big Data, Cybersecurity, and Blockchain Technologies.  

Interesting sectors are retail, consumer products, financial services, telecom, high tech, life sciences/health-wellness ... in the U.S. and in trans-Atlantic/Pacific contexts.
