We follow a co-investment model, partnering with experienced private sector investors including angel syndicates, venture capital and corporate venture capital funds. We currently only invest alongside a professional lead.
Our investment process involves three key decision points:
- Eligibility checks
- General Partner provides authority to proceed to Investment Committee
- Investment Committee decision
Decisions to invest are guided by the following criteria:
|1. Company stage||8. Technology protection|
|2. Sector & portfolio fit||9. Strategic & operational plan|
|3. Management team||10. Exit/liquidity event|
|4. Product/service offering||11. Risk management|
|5. Market analysis||12. Valuation|
|6. Market validation||13. Responsible investment|
|7. Technology||14. Due-diligence checks|
On completion of transactions, OCC will continue to work with our investee companies. We review monthly management information and commercial updates and often look to appoint a non-executive director and/or observer to the board.
