Houston Ventures focuses on technology opportunities that solve operational problems in the Energy Industry. These technologies often are used in other industries to drive incremental revenue or deliver cost reductions, but they have not yet made the transition to the energy sector.
Handicapping Industry Priorities
In any given year, managers in the Energy Industry are willing to impose only a limited number of operational changes. Evaluating new companies involves handicapping the likelihood of change enabled by new technology. We rely on our Energy Industry focus and relationships to make informed decisions about industry’s evolution and establish growth plans for our portfolio companies.
Operating Approach for Portfolio
We work with companies to help them understand the operating model most compelling to their target market. We establish enterprise risk management frameworks to best accommodate the regulatory and statutory risks of operating internationally. We enable interaction among portfolio companies so that solutions to problems previously solved by others are shared. We help recruit independent directors with deep subject matter expertise and industry credibility.
Your Sole Source Financial Partner
Through our Funds and LP relationships, we strive to be a reliable sole source of your equity capital needs. We also have extensive history with mezzanine and senior debt credit markets to assist in additional growth and working capital needs.
