We’re technology investors,
building value with our experience, relationships and capital

Who We Are
In a market increasingly crowding into large cap equities, we make concentrated investments in smaller, often overlooked companies where 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 to create value.

What We Look For
We focus on publicly-traded Tech companies with market values between $100M and $1.5B in the sectors we know best. We seek to invest $10 – 100 million in each opportunity.
Our Strategic Partners
Our portfolio benefits from a hand-picked team of C-level executives, directors and technology investors with whom we have worked over the past 20 years. Together, we leverage our relationships and industry expertise to help businesses reach their full potential.
