Softsmith is actively seeking interesting ideas, concepts and solutions across multiple industries. We invest in the form of capital, or through the application of our own resources, or both. Our team cuts across experts in finance, operations, technology, sales, marketing and strategic business planning. We take pride in investing our intellectual capital in businesses that interest and excite us.
Our approach is more creative than solely investing capital. Our investment objective is to create long-term value through capital growth and cash flow by investing in a portfolio of carefully selected startups.
Ideas are life. They are engines for growth, wealth and development. However, ideas are not much if they cannot be actualized. Softsmith provides founders & startups access to capital to transform ideas into value.
The nascent stage of starting up companies is one in which founders operate within a limitation of resources. Ranging from market data, office space, subject matter experts, talent, just to mention a few, Softsmith provides the necessary resources for startups to fuel their growth.
