Many innovative technology companies share the same problem when trying to raise capital: traditional private equity funds are unable to provide the capital they need to take their products to market.
At FTL, we provide the funding these companies need. Unlike traditional private equity funds, our approach to financing innovation is built on our expertise managing risk and structuring finance for large capital-intensive projects.
We focus on the areas we believe will define the future of humanity: energy, industrial technology, and the life sciences. We can finance projects with capital requirements from $25 million on up, and we are comfortable funding projects with long holding periods and significant perceived risk.
Finding the right fit
Innovation is about more than a good idea, so we look for companies in specific industries, with clearly defined markets and strong, financially secure projects.
Choosing the right places to deploy capital is essential for a healthy private equity fund.
At FTL, we have very high standards when it comes to choosing our portfolio partners, and only work with the best companies and management teams, with the most exciting technologies.
A collaborative approach for investing in innovation
Companies in the life sciences, energy, and industrial technology offer the chance to cure cancer, create sustainable fuels and take humanity beyond the stars. But without the project finance required to get off the ground, these ambitions are impossible to achieve.
We can creatively deploy a combination of debt capital and equity finance to fund projects with large capital requirements, long holding periods, and high perceived risk. We work collaboratively with management and other investors to take those final steps towards success.
