INVESTMENT STRATEGY

Investment Strategy

Look for companies that address large, global markets (> $1 billion)
Invest in companies with differentiated value propositions
Seek out and build strong management teams

But many aspects of our strategy are unique to NSV. We:

Focus on fundamental, science-based innovation with strong IP-based protection

Focus on the company-specific context and frequently take contrarian views

Go where the science is. Many of our companies are outside the traditional Tech and Life Science hubs

Build teams that fit the companies’ stage of development, employing “virtual” business models as much as possible

Look for right investment teams and syndicates – willing to lead, follow, or be sole investors

Are patient and continue to support our companies through value inflection points
