Consequently, our model allows investors to capitalize on traditional venture upside, while significantly mitigating risk. With a global sales force comprised of carefully selected and enduring partnerships, we are able to push products to market on a global scale, thus ensuring higher IRRs, ROIs and ultimately exit valuations for our portfolio companies.
