Paladin invests in disruptive technology companies who solve important customer problems in both private and public sector markets. This “dual use” investment strategy combined with the diverse background of our partners enables Paladin to invest opportunistically with confidence and add value across a wide array of market sectors and company stages. We tend to focus in sectors which most naturally fit the needs of both Fortune 500 and the Federal enterprises, including Information Technology, Cyber Security, Enterprise Mobility and Mobile Broadband. While we are sometimes the first institutional investor, we tend to focus on the market entry stage where a company has a technology, product, or service that has received initial market acceptability and where our typical initial investment can be leveraged to scale a repeating sales process or extend a promising product roadmap. We are often co-investing as part of a syndicate where our knowledge of government procurement and relationships in the customer/integrator community around Washington, DC, are uniquely valuable to its portfolio companies boards of directors and management teams alike.
