  • Our Company

    What We Do

    We work with investment sponsors, financial product developers, and asset managers to design investment vehicles and assess business models to advance the scaling of smart infrastructure systems. Smart systems are defined by a combination of real assets and IoT (internet of things) enterprise infrastructure.

    Why Smart Infrastructure Finance

    Increasingly, smart systems are being integrated across cities, water, energy, agriculture and transportation systems. These IoT systems open up opportunities for new data-driven business models and investment vehicles such as derivatives, insurance and smart asset-backed securities. Driven by trends and transactions over sensor networks, and verified using natural language processing, these more efficient investment models have the potential to accelerate the adoption of adaptive and resilient systems.

    Our Story

    The company was founded in 2016, while working as a partner with the Global CleanTech Cluster Association, a Swiss Foundation focused on building out global supply chains for low carbon transitioning and sustainability. Drawing from empirical information of 54 economic development clusters in 27 countries, we set out to uncover value capture, industry relationships, and investment momentum across industries and geographies. Our tools codify - and learn from - this unstructured knowledge with company stage, geographic region and industry sector granularity.

    Work with Us

    We offer end-to-end macro- and microeconomic services around industry ecosystem analysis, algorithmic non-financial assessment of investment grade, asset allocation strategies, and blended finance fund designs. For more, check our YouTube Channel.

    Algorithmic Assessment of Unstructured Risk Metrics

    Value Capture Position

    Industry view of the firm

    Investment Grade

    Investor view of the firm

    Given the value capture position, what is the investment opportunity in the company: bootstrap, non-equity, or equity investment models? Upside potential, and time-value of capital to achieve scale are key.
