An Ocean Of Opportunities
Where We Invest
Very few family offices have full access to the opportunities of this real asset. Named the 'floating real estate' by Financial Times, maritime projects are a great diversification tool for family offices. The 2008 financial crisis allowed new investors to consider shipping.
We invest in growth capital opportunities typically between $3 million and $25 million per transaction. We target companies with proven business models and superior growth potential. Navis is well suited to undertake situations that require timely responses, complicated negotiations or unusual structuring techniques
Assisting entrepreneurs in their quest for success. We invest early between 300K to $2M. We are industry agnostic but our current sweet spot is technology, financial services, and education. We are known to have written smaller checks for concepts presented on a napkin.
True Alignment of Interests
Flexibility, Options, And Results.
Navis Ventures is fully owned and operated by a Boston based family office that has been focusing in direct investments since 1948. Navis was recently created to allow new subscribers (other family offices) access to our services.
Navis Ventures is a professional deal flow originator who executes non-intrusive monitoring. The belief is that “building successful companies today is about taking the best starting position at the gate, and then reducing risks while increasing probabilities throughout the life of the company'.
Navis Ventures is unique among entrepreneurs because of its ability to better align the interest of all stakeholders. Traditional vc firms need to both "partner" and "squeeze" to be profitable for their limited partners. Our emphasis is purely on the success of the business where its growth is the driver of the relationship.
Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.
