CenterPoint Ventures Co. invests primarily on investments in communications infrastructure, wireless, enterprise software, business applications, semiconductors, hardware and Internet-enabled services companies located in Texas and the Southwestern US.The firm looks for companies with business models and growth potential that is based on the assumption of profitability within three years. They also seek companies with the potential for earning a $1 billion valuation in the public market within five years. Companies should receive the majority of their revenue from the sales of products, interactive services or technology licenses, rather than from advertising. The firm seeks to invest in companies that that possess significant intellectual property including patentable technologies, software codes, proprietary processes and concepts or other strategic core competencies that can dominate and defend target markets. The firm prefers to invest in companies with intellectual property that is defined, documented and in the patent process, if applicable. Companies must be able to leverage core competencies into scalable businesses that deliver lasting value. Technologies or inventions must have marketable, commercial applications. Product concepts must show the potential to evolve into comprehensive solutions. CenterPoint invests in companies with products or service can have influence on the current market. They do not invest in pure-science inventions in which real-world applications are years away. The firm also is not interested in entering mature markets that are already crowded with competitors.CenterPoint Ventures focuses on investments in early-stage private companies at the first or second round of financing. They often act as lead investor in the initial venture round. Investments range from $5 million to $15 million per company over two to three rounds of funding. CenterPoint requires an active role on their portfolio companies' boards of directors. The firm and their co-investors expect to eventually distribute their shareholdings in their portfolio companies to their limited partners. As such, they seek investments with the potential to trade on the public market through an IPO or as a merger with an appropriate parent company within five years. CenterPoint expects that within five years, the portfolio company should be able to deliver five to ten times return on the firm's investment, with CenterPoint retaining a meaningful equity share of 10% or higher for their limited partners.
