We're technology investors,
leveraging our experience, relationships and capital to help create value

Who We Are
In a market crowded into the largest technology companies, we make concentrated investments in underappreciated and often overlooked companies where we believe compelling value creation opportunities exist.

We're a different kind of investor.

We built our reputation as trusted advisors, working closely with management teams and Boards to help them achieve their full potential. At White Hat, our mission is unchanged.

We invest in companies, not stocks.

We are long-term investors, with a mandate to constructively engage. Our goal is to strengthen the companies in our portfolio by making our resources available to them.

We invest to make a difference.

We offer companies transformational capital and differentiated strategic insights, complemented by our deep network of relationships.

Our Approach
Focused

We make concentrated, value-oriented investments in companies with differentiated technologies serving mission-critical applications.

Flexible

We acquire significant ownership stakes in the open market, through privately negotiated purchases of insider holdings and structured direct investments.

Connected

We leverage the industry insights, operating expertise and relationships of our Strategic Partners in an effort to create value.

What We Look For
We focus on publicly-traded tech companies with market values between $100 million and $5 billion in sectors we know best. We seek to invest $10 – 200 million in each opportunity.
