The Venture Building unit forms companies from the ground up around the world. These businesses are formed at our offices in Bahrain, Kerala, Bangalore, Silicon Valley, or Shenzhen.
Our process of deciding on what venture to build next starts with an assessment of the macroeconomic landscape. We attempt to predict macroeconomic trends and allocate capital to monetize those predictions.
One of our predictions is that technological progress will lead to the formation of new industries at an increasing rate going forward. We believe that this will create opportunities for us to invest in R&D to create market leaders in what we believe will be the major industries of the future. As part of this process, we have initiated 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. We utilize our infrastructure of offices in the US, India, the Middle East, and China for this purpose, in order to create world-class businesses that emerge from our R&D labs to be exceptional global enterprises.
Another of our macroeconomic predictions is that consumers in emerging markets will increase the percentage of their incomes that they allocate to education, health, and food as their income levels increase. As a part of this hypothesis, we have initiated multiple ventures in education, health, and foods in emerging markets, either by acting as franchisees or licensees of major global brands, or by creating our own brands.
If an invention or innovation that we devise shows promise, or if we feel a franchise, licensing relationship, or business idea 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.
