Dallas, Texas and Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2017
Dominion Harbor Enterprises (DHE) has partnered with Hawkeye Ventures (HV) to create a US$50.0 Million patent acquisition investment fund. The fund has been structured to allow for maximum flexibility of both investment size and portfolio size. Patents are a unique asset class and, historically, traditional investment capital models have proven themselves unsuccessful - including the public markets. This new fund pairs savvy investment professionals with a world leader in IP commercialization.
“Recent turmoil at the United States legislative and judicial levels, BREXIT in Europe and a capital flight to China has forced many of the larger US-based IP investment participants to exit the industry leaving a large vacuum of opportunity and many patent holders with no IP commercialization options.” said David Pridham, co-founder and CEO of Dominion Harbor, “Here at Dominion Harbor we have a proven and repeatable investment model that accounts for this uncertainty and allows us to pursue above market returns.”
The relationship with HV allows for net new investment capital to enter the Intellectual Property industry for what’s believed to be the first time in 2017 – here in the US. The team at HV, in addition to being experienced financiers, are themselves, successful innovators and entrepreneurs and see an almost limitless opportunity for a focused and disciplined approach to IP investing.
“We have been studying the global intellectual property industry for quite some time and see an immediate and unique investment opportunity,” said Michael Allen, Managing Director for Hawkeye Ventures, “What we were missing in IP expertise we found in David and Dominion Harbor. We will merge our capital resources with their world leadership in IP commercialization. The have a global footprint and unrivaled access to quality portfolios. Both teams have high expectations - grounded in experience.”
The fund currently plans to invest in 5 to 10 portfolios per year sourced globally and if the market dictates there are provisions to deploy additional capital well above the initial fund commitment.
