Activate partners with management teams in high growth companies and provides them with the necessary capital, resources and support to achieve their highest potential. We target emerging market leaders and help to build them into companies of meaningful scale and impact. Together the Principals have successfully invested over $1 billion in our target sectors, resulting in 11 IPOs and 18 exits through acquisition.

Collectively the Principals have more than 80 years of experience in our target markets, primarily as investors but also as founders and operators. We have experienced many successes, yet understand the challenges that come with striving to build world class companies. Our philosophy is to work closely with our management teams to unlock value, applying decades of sector experience, a deep rolodex of industry leaders, a strategic view of a rapidly changing world and a deep conviction in what we and our companies do – transform markets and positively impact how people work and live.

The fundamental thesis of Activate is that the accelerating adoption of technology and innovation is transforming major industrial markets to make the world more efficient, smart and sustainable. We will invest in companies and work with our strategic partners to bring forward the integration of new technologies and business models that will significantly impact the way energy, transportation and industry evolve through the 21st century.
