Experienced Capital for early stage mobile and broadband sector ventures
Our approach is to match experienced practitioners with the founding teams of technology ventures, inject early stage capital, and provide hands-on support from the i-Hatch team. In addition, throughout the lifetime of an investment, i-Hatch leverages the substantial contact base developed through deep focus on the mobile and broadband sectors.
Our capital comes in the form of early stage equity, follow-on expansion capital, or venture debt, offering the ability to service a full cap table overtime.
Our investment filters focus on early stage technology ventures building business broadly across our key industry sectors of mobile and broadband. For example, within the mobile sector this would include opportunities in wireless infrastructure, mobile data services, messaging, enabling technologies platforms, and D2C.
Our sector-based investment strategy is best understood by viewing our portfolio results over time.
