What we look for
Walden International invests in companies across sectors including:
- Internet & Digital Media
- Software & IT Services
- Emerging Technologies
Our investments focus on opportunities in early stage (seed or startup) and
expansion stage (growth) companies that can benefit from the capital and
value-add experience we can use to help accelerate your growth.
It helps (but is not necessary) if an investment opportunity is referred to us
by someone we know. This helps us because we get an upfront independent view
from someone we respect and you will have already got a sense of what we can do
to help you and your company.
Regardless of whether you contact us directly or are referred to us, it helps to
keep the following points in mind:
- Our success over more than 20 years has come from investing in companies with
a clear solution to a well defined problem. This means having a qualified base
that you can identify, size and define a sales channel through which you can
reach your target customers.
- Be able to simply explain why your product or service is compelling.
- We back a team that is either well proven in the past or have unique and
relevant experience that can make a difference in achieving success. We look for
a balance of the skills needed to successfully build a company including team
building, marketing/positioning, fund raising and frugality.
