Where We Look

The rapidly growing global population demands increased supplies of scarce natural resources and places unprecedented strain on the infrastructure that supports our societies.

Consequently, new technologies and business models that increase the efficiency by which resources are produced or consumed are of increasing importance.

In addition, advances in information technology (hardware and software) are providing unprecedented amounts of data, transparency to underlying problems, and access to smarter solutions. As a result, enterprise software, cloud computing, mobile integration, and big data will change the competitive landscape in nearly every market.

We look for investment opportunities in sectors where these global trends are playing out and creating opportunity for change. Specifically, we focus on sectors with strategic relevance to Michigan and the Midwest, such as:

• Agriculture/Food
• Energy
• Transportation

Within those sectors, we back product and software companies, whose solutions offer greater efficiency, smarter infrastructure and higher levels of value and utility to consumers.
