We are long-term oriented, seek impact and profit, and take a hands-on approach to working with our partners. We listen to all our partners and we act in the interests of the Mariam Global Health vision.
We invest in the business ventures of impact innovators. While we do not invest in science projects, we are well aware that the business ventures of these impact innovators rests on the foundation science. Therefore, it is necessary to also invest into the research and development of the business ventures.
We primarily invest in early-stage business ventures. In many cases, these businesses may not be fully established, may be distressed operationally, or may be in great need of capital. Our model allows us to invest in such opportunities, as our business management team steps in to put the business foundations in place in order to move the venture toward a greater probability of success. Return on investment comes not only from financial capital, but also other factors such as sweat equity, experience, and knowledge.
While intuition is often a learned instinct through years of experience, we primarily work under the principles of rationality and procedures, not by guts or emotions. While we are impact-oriented, we are also science driven. This not only refers to the science of the impact innovator, but also the sciences of decision-making, economics, and organizational behavior. The decision to make an investment is based on the science of decision making and the evidence-based principles of both investing and science.
Our focus is on IMPACT and PROFIT. We seek impact sustainability. We expect long-term financial success to be correlated with business outcomes and global impact.
