Over 30 years ago, Walden International pioneered the concept of cross-border venture investments.

We seek the best entrepreneurs who look to build great companies through leverage of talent and markets independent of geography.

Walden International is the leading firm focused on cross-border investments – our integrated team is dedicated to helping you build the next industry leading companies.

/What We Look For

Walden International invests in companies across sectors including:

• Internet & Digital Media
• Semiconductors
• Software & IT Services
• Emerging Technologies
• Our investments focus on opportunities in early stage (seed or startup) and expansion stage (growth) companies that can benefit from the capital and value-add experience we can use to help accelerate your growth.

It helps (but is not necessary) if an investment opportunity is referred to us by someone we know. This helps us because we get an upfront independent view from someone we respect and you will have already got a sense of what we can do to help you and your company.

Regardless of whether you contact us directly or are referred to us, it helps to keep the following points in mind:

• Our success over more than 30 years has come from investing in companies with a clear solution to a well defined problem. This means having a qualified base that you can identify, size and define a sales channel through which you can reach your target customers.
• Be able to simply explain why your product or service is compelling.
• We back a team that is either well proven in the past or have unique and relevant experience that can make a difference in achieving success. We look for a balance of the skills needed to successfully build a company including team building, marketing/positioning, fund raising and frugality.

/Our Value Add

Walden International looks to invest in companies where we can help accelerate growth through the experience, active involvement and relationships within our integrated team of investment professionals.

Our team includes former CEOs and senior executives from both startup and enterprise class companies. We know what it’s like to work in a company and face the challenges (and victories!) of growing a company. This experience can help you strategize, recruit, scale your company and of course, raise additional capital in the future.

Walden International excels in helping you leverage cross-border resources in different continents. We help companies find talent, business resources and markets beyond those of the domestic market. Our global perspective and relationships can be critical to helping your company expand and grow into new markets.

We get actively involved to help you and your company usually by taking a seat on the Board of Directors of your company. Although you will work closely with a primary member of the Walden International team, our full team of investment professionals is available as a resource to you – independent of geography or time zone constraints.

Walden International has a unique and powerful network of government, corporate and personal relationships across the world. We can help you access the right people in potential strategic partners that can make a key difference in growing your company.

We are long term investors – this shapes our perspective about how a company grows and seeks to match strategy and capital with long term objectives. We want to invest in companies that can become major players in their markets.

We are here to help!

Let's actively shape the future together. Don't hesitate and get in contact.
