Embracing the global economy

I had a really interesting opportunity to talk about one of our favourite topics yesterday at AlphaTech covering how to build out a tech. company in today’s global economy. From discussions around the coffee table & responses afterwards people really seemed to buy into our belief that you should embrace the relative strengths of capital, talent and customers in different geographies in building a business that is as powerful and valuable as it has the potential to be. If you’re interested you can take a look at the presentation which is attached.

New Investment: Cognitive Match

We are very excited to announce that we have recently made a new investment, and have added Cognitive Match to our portfolio.

Over past several months, we dug deep into this business, and to the  innovative solutions it is bringing to market.  The company has built a very compelling offering that allows its customers to increase revenue and drive higher conversion rates online by intelligently targeting and optimising both onsite and offsite creative content.  Alex Kelleher, the CEO is proving to be thought leader in this space, and he has assembled a world class team that we believe will push this business to new heights.  Cognitive Match have made news on several occasions lately, announcing industry accolades, key hires, and a new focus on building a commercial hub in New York City.

We look forward to working closely with Alex and the team at Cognitive Match over the coming months as they achieve greater success.
