Vela Technologies looking for the "game changers" says CEO
Vela Technologies PLC (LON:VELA) invests in ‘game changing’ businesses that offer long term change.
The group invests in early stage ‘disruptive’ technologies, which chief executive Antony Laiker says is an oft overused term.
For him it means a business that changes the way in which it has traditionally operated.
“It has to be a long term change,” he says, looking primarily at the potential of the business and the strength of the management team before investing.
Laiker takes Proactive through his favourite investments in the group’s portfolio, including a luggage delivery business, a glasses-free 3D technology and an e-currency platform.
He says much bigger investors are starting to show interest and the whole portfolio is performing well.
“We’ve got a lot of value in terms of investments and a number still have a long way to go, but it’s time to be more vocal,” he adds.
