HOW WE DO IT
THE SCIENCE OF IDEA REALISATION IS A TESTED AND PROVEN FORMULA THAT ENABLES US TO MONETIZE AND MARKET TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS
Our strategic and operational capabilities are amplified by our partnerships, networks and insights.
SYNERGY: WE INVEST DIRECTLY
We are looking for potential partnerships that align with our investment criteria.
As we invest our time and capital, we’re looking for the optimal fit, which we assess according to this criteria:
DOES IT MAKE SENSE?
- Does it answer a need?
- Is it exciting?
- Does it add something new?
- Does it hold value?
- Can we grow this value?
- Is there synergy between us and you?
- Can we overcome the risks?
IS IT SMART BUSINESS?
- Does the business case add up?
- Do the value timelines make sense?
- Can we secure the initial investment?
- Can we integrate seamlessly?
- Will the key people remain engaged?
CAN IT SCALE?
- Is there an equity opportunity?
- Is there an opportunity for direct investment or value creation?
- Is it at start-up or growing concern level?
- Can this be scaled to be a robust large business?
If your business or idea ticks most of these boxes, we want to hear from you.
STRATEGY: WE ANSWER QUESTIONS
Some people are daunted by the question “how?”. At SCIATION, these kinds of questions are why we get up in the morning. Here are some of the thought starters that guide our strategies and tactics.
How can we create a viable value proposition?
How can we turn this idea into a feasible technology solution?
How can we make this a working technology business?
How can we extend a product’s lifecycle?
How can we formulate the right strategy?
How can we make the correct go-to-market choices?
How can we take advantage of the African market?
OPERATIONS: WE MULTIPLY EFFORT
We combine teamwork with a focused work-life-balance and operational excellence to work smart and exponentially amplify effort into results.
PARTNERSHIPS: WE TRANSFER SKILLS
We believe in growing partnerships as much as we believe in generating profit. We’ve seen that when we share what we know – and who we know – with our investments, we’re able to fuel lasting growth.
1. We harness and power-up existing abilities through skills transfer.
2. We encourage self-learning to stay ahead of the curve.
3. We continuously focus on skills development to meet the changing needs of the technology space.
NETWORK & INSIGHTS: WE GO THE DISTANCE
Our global network opens doors – our reach is unlimited as we explore far and wide.
Our international insights translate into strategy – we understand geographical requirements as well as global, regional and local trends.
END GOAL: WE MONETIZE & MARKET TECHNOLOGY
A great idea that cannot be commercially sustained or never reaches market is dead in the water. Through product monetization and market realisation, we create lasting success.
