Deals with leading brands on five continents
Over eighteen years, we've worked with some incredible international telecommunications, aerospace, media and technology companies on five continents, including Alcatel, British Aerospace, British Telecom, CCTV, Comcast, Cox, CyberDefender, Earthlink, ESA, Gateway Communications, Google, IAC, IBM, Microsoft, Mozido, Muvee, Naspers, Qwest, Sony Television, Telstra, Vodacom, and WorldSpace. One of our first clients was the Institute of Systems Science (later Kent Ridge Digital Labs/A*Star), the first MIT educational franchise established outside of the US.
With respect to government agency work, we've liased successfully with numerous high-level members of government in more than 20 countries, successfully negotiating spectrum rights and content deals in countries as diverse as Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States. We're successfully obtained the assistance of the Economic Development Board (EDB) of Singapore. Our network of co-investors includes professional fund managers in Bahrain, Hong Kong, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States.
Cutting-edge technology breakthroughs and strategic thinking
Since 2000, we've co-authored several technology patents, including three patents related to the world's most advanced secure web browsing and secure DNS networking technology. We co-founded and funded Authentium (later SafeCentral), one of the leading providers of desktop security software. More recently, we've advised mobile payment technology leader Mozido on branding and corporate strategy, and guided internal combustion innovator Yan Engines on business planning and fund-raising.
During 2011, we helped launch three exciting new companies - Heardable.com, the "Dun & Bradstreet of online brand health" (Walmart.com), VIREO Broadband, a low-cost, high bandwidth broadband overbuilder launching in 81 US markets, and LenderExchange.com - the leading source for comprehensive data on hundreds of US and Canadian lenders. So far, in 2012, we have made three more investments in early-stage companies in Asia, the US, and Australia, that we believe have tremendous potential.
