VIP Investment ethos * ECOSYSTEM ECONOMICS

DIRECT INVESTMENTS

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

We are told that the pace of change is accelerating.

Technologically, we are capable of making science fiction reality, yet more is possible. Societally, we have adapted to new mores, yet attitudes persist. Economically, we are more connected, yet access to capital remains limited. Within these essential contradictions, the basis of investment remains the same: buy low, sell high and do good in between.

VIVA Investment Partners understand that the changes which affect all our lives require stewardship in order that they are able to achieve their full potential. Using techniques developed through years of investment experience, we identify the new, prepare it for launch and integrate it into the wider ecosystem.

We do things differently so that we can achieve the same result: the successful development of emerging technology whose applications to our changing world will benefit all concerned.

The Ecosystems: Direct investments

We believe that the key to investment success lies in the application of new technology and systems to the abiding challenges facing society presented in Ecosystems, showcased here & on our EntrepreneurCountry Global© platform.

Electric Mobility

This Ecosystem includes Electric Vehicles and the infrastructure required for them to function - energy producers, distributors, i. e. charging stations, e-Mobility software platforms and many more.

Energy Economics

Energy is a growing field of interest for VIP as the world transitions between fossil fuels and cleaner sources of energy. Removing carbon, waste and costs from global supply chains will improve their efficiency.

Digital Assets & securities

Anything existing in a digital form can be considered a digital asset, such as bitcoin or cryptocurrencies. Digital securities share the same technology, running on blockchain, but securities represent ownership of an underlying asset.

Luxury & Wellbeing

Diamonds may be forever, but the Luxury & Wellbeing Ecosystem continuously develops. The constant shifts in technology & the need for a minor environmental impact have led to an evolution in one of the oldest Ecosystems.

data as an asset

Everything is data, but can data be everything, even an asset? We consider data valuable, but the ownership and ability to collect, store & interpret data is what makes it a strategic asset in one's hands.

SUSTAINABILITY

The most used keyword in the last decade, sustainability, has become crucial for the future. This Ecosystem includes companies creating solutions for a zero-emissions planet in the fields of energy, infrastructure, transportation, industry and many more.

Companies in Focus

DRIVE Software Solutions

A market-leading Fleet Management Software (FMS) provider, DRIVE Software Solution Limited’s ODO application is at the heart of two current macro trends: the transition from ICE (internal combustion engines) to EVs (electric vehicles) and the potential change in “work geography” within the major economies. 

Its management applications enable the leased automotive market transition from “ownership” to “usership”. Working with automotive lease companies and their customers, DSSL provides the tools which facilitate the management of “hybrid” fleets (both ICE and EV), maximising efficiencies available from both while ensuring compliance with emerging regulations. This market dynamic is accelerating as evidenced by the UK Government’s 2021 ban of ICE-powered new vehicles by 2030.

ODO’s functionality will also support the demands of road logistics management as the “work geography” of major economies changes. Delivery networks are likely to change, at times dramatically. ODO provides vital management information to maximise fleet usage and cost within this changing environment.

VASHI

Vashi

Jewellery should be an expression of your story, not another brand’s. For generations customers have had to buy the same ready-made jewellery as everybody else, to express something that should be personal, unique, and individual to them Vashi is revolutionising customer interaction by allowing customers to co-create their own jewellery in cutting edge workshops inside the store with experts at their side.

As a challenger brand unrestrained by legacy structures, Vashi has been able to build an ethical omni-channel business purpose-built for the Millennials and Gen Z dominated world The business is capturing market share at a fast rate by solving many core industry problems, such as choice determined by store, inappropriate destinations, heritage brands and single route to market.

The business has grown its sales tenfold in three years and expects to grow a further thirteen times in the next five years This growth has been recognised by The Sunday Times’ “Fast Track” analysis, amongst others. Management is executing skilfully, building one of the most dynamic scale-up cultures in the UK today.

Energy Economics

Proton Technology

In March of 2016, Proton Technologies Canada was created to commercialize clean, low-cost hydrogen production from oilfields. Patents, simulations, lab, and field demonstrations soon followed.

Coined ‘Clear H2’, the companies patented process and separation technology involves a carbon-free, low-cost opportunity for extracting hydrogen using previously expensed infrastructure. In Canada, existing energy infrastructure such as old oilfields, wells, roads, powerlines, exist in abundance. While these investments have been centered around a carbon-intensive system, Proton can repurpose them to align with clean energy goals.

For example, most oil and gas fields produce well below 50% of the oil or gas in the ground. When oilfields are abandoned, they still contain huge amounts of hydrocarbons that have not been extracted due to commercial or technical constraints. The Proton process includes injecting oxygen into a wellbore, triggering downhole reactions within the hydrocarbon reservoir, and filtering the extraction of the downhole gases.
