The NETVAL Strategy
NetVal focuses on innovative technology-driven businesses at the early stages of their operation as we hold that a well-planned developmental period is critical to a business’s long-term success. We identify entrepreneurs with vision, and help transform that vision into reality in an entrepreneur-friendly manner.
NetVal’s close working relationship with entrepreneurs is aimed at complementing their inherent skills and expertise. We achieve this by looking at the company’s fundamentals to emphasize them by adding value where appropriate. Our contribution often takes the form of an unbiased industry assessment together with the offer of specialised knowledge, operating skills, funding and an extensive network. In building relationships, we understand that the company’s operations are their responsibility and get involved only at strategic phases to enhance business growth.
While we mainly invest in the early stages of a business we also consider involvement in companies who have operated for some time and need additional working capital for strategic expansion and further increase of market share.
We are primarily interested in companies that serve fast growing global markets with the potential to achieve dominance in their own niche. Though this may span a wide range of industries, we currently focus on the following areas:
healthcare and life sciences
We are, however, keen to talk to entrepreneurs from other areas who are confident of their growth potential.
NetVal’s investments range typically from one to five million Malaysian Ringgit. For larger size investments, we invite strategic co-investors to meet the financial requirements of the entrepreneurs.
