    Description:

    Firelake Capital Management focuses on emerging technology markets such as information technology, energy technology, and material science. The firm prefers to make either very early (seed/Series A) or very late (mezzanine) investments in companies along with traditional venture capital investors. The company strives to invest in businesses with the management talent and experience, intellectual property and market strategy to build a large company offering at least a 5x return. The company's strategy is to sell when growth is fully discounted and hedge when a sector is over valued. Approximately 70-100% of the firm's investments will be in small cap public technology companies. Up to 30% will be in private company investments. Firelake invests through the Firelake Strategic Technology Fund, LP, a Delaware limited partnership, and can facilitate offshore investments through a Cayman Island entity, Firelake Strategic Technology Fund, Ltd.
