ABS Ventures evaluates investment opportunities on the following criteria:

Customer Accepted Solutions for Rapidly Growing Markets. ABS Ventures invests in large, rapidly growing companies that deliver solutions with a quantifiable return-on-investment. We also are interested in new, refined or reinvented solutions that are applicable to large existing markets where rapid payback can create high growth rates.

Exceptional Management Teams. ABS Ventures looks for companies that have either complete or near-complete management teams with deep experience and strong performance track records. In cases where the team is not complete, ABS Ventures is able to provide assistance in introducing and/or identifying excellent candidates with the skill set to help propel the company forward.

Defensible and Differentiated Technology-Based Solutions. We look for companies which have developed products or services that are differentiated and defensible. Mid-stage companies that only differentiate themselves by marketing or sales execution are vulnerable to incumbent technology companies. As an investor, ABS Ventures advises companies on upgrading marketing and sales capabilities, but the company must have technological advantages in the market first.

Recurring Revenue Models. ABS Ventures prefers to invest in growth stage companies that build long-term customer relationships with multiple sales and service opportunities.

Opportunity to Simplify Capital Structure. ABS Ventures has the unique ability and experience to invest new capital into mid-stage companies and purchase full/partial equity positions from existing investors and founders. This often re-energizes the management team to execute on a sensible growth plan.
