As an experienced international venture capitalist, I look to invest in early-stage opportunities with significant global growth potential. Through extensive networking capabilities with investment bankers, hedge fund managers, brokers and other high net-worth individuals, Global Vision has raised capital for a number of highly successful world-class companies in a variety of different sectors, as well as investing our own funds in these projects. By also providing intellectual capital to our companies, Global Vision offers strategic advice on financings, mergers & acquisitions and other related business transactions in mining, e-commerce, and technology. Although the resource sector continues to be our main focus in investing, I encourage venture capital investing in other sectors as well and we will continue to welcome opportunities in these other fields.
