Our world is being profoundly affected at every level by IT-enabled innovation driven by cloud, mobile and IoT computing, social networks, and big data analytics. And as more of our lives move online, the need for cyber security solutions magnifies.
At TechOperators, we seek out opportunities at the intersection of these macro waves with the B2B software sectors we know well. Specifically, we focus on opportunities to innovate and transform solutions for cyber security, enterprise productivity, and IT infrastructure. Within these sectors, we see unbounded opportunity for disruption of incumbent vendors, enabling new markets, solving new problems, and solving old problems affordably.
As you can see in our portfolio, we seek entrepreneurs that are innovating within these markets in a variety of ways, such as:
- Digital Marketing Automation
- Do-It-For-Me Solutions for SMB
- Predictive Analytics and IoT Enterprise Solutions
- Sales Process Improvements based on Big Data Analytics
- Cyber Security Management and Prevention Solutions
While our interests are wide, we maintain focus on the areas of the business software world where we have domain expertise and can add value to our companies. This typically excludes businesses in the consumer, healthcare, and life sciences sectors. Businesses with a hardware component, unless it is a minor part of the overall solution, are also generally not a good fit for TechOperators. We highly value revenue traction in evaluating early stage companies, and typically, investing in pre-revenue companies is an exception case for us.
Finally, our team includes pioneers in the cyber security market, having been deeply engaged as entrepreneurs and investors for over 20 years. Leveraging our broad network, we invest across the U.S. in cyber security. For our B2B portfolio, we have a distinct preference for investing in the Southeastern United States.
