Our Greenfield Capital unit consists of the financial capital that we allocate to new businesses that we form from the ground up around the world. These new businesses are typically formed at our offices in Bahrain, Kerala, Bangalore, Silicon Valley, or Shenzhen, before being spun off as separate companies. We operate these businesses under separate greenfield funds. The funds are managed and part-owned by MBA Fakhro. In all cases, we normally aspire for each fund to maintain a controlling interest in the businesses it forms, with the objective of attaining a return on investment resulting from one or more of the following: 1) through dividend contributions of the business, 2) through asset appreciation by a private fundraising round at a higher valuation (venture capital), 3) through a partial private sale, or 4) through a public partial sale (an IPO).
Our Greenfield Capital unit is an innovation-focused financial investor. Our focus is on technological progress and on developing our own proprietary inventions and innovations through our R&D labs around the world. Under the Greenfield Capital unit, we have founded multiple businesses around the globe in fields including artificial intelligence, machine learning, biotech, business automation software, fintech, electric cars, drones, websites, apps, greentech and the internet of things. In addition to this, we also found or acquire franchises in the US, India, the Middle East, and Africa.
If an invention or innovation that we devise shows promise, or if we feel a franchise or other relationship meets our criteria in terms of business philosophy and return on investment, then we form a wholly-owned subsidiary company to own the rights to the proprietary information, and recruit a great team to make the business a success. As the team develops, we then assign the team leader as a co-founder and bring on external venture capital investors.
We currently create companies under a number of Greenfield Capital funds. All of our Greenfield Capital funds are perpetual funds that are managed by MBA Fakhro.
