The model that might define the family office in the 21st century is likely to be those investment groups set up by successful tech entrepreneurs. Not only have they made a lot of money – often very quickly – they have also pushed boundaries with their innovations in technology. And usually they have the same mentality when it comes to investing – pushing boundaries. As such, these groups might just be behind the big innovations and companies of tomorrow.
In an effort to build a better picture of these hugely influential groups, Family Capital will over the next few weeks bring insights into these investment groups, what themes they are focusing on and what makes them unique among the world of private investment groups.
