UNIDEL believes in the power of technology enabled disruptive business ideas and recognizes their need for specialized backing through a long-term vision, aided by operational expertise and patient capital. In laying the seeds of an enterprise, UNIDEL invests its own financial capital and seeks co-investments from individuals and firms who can add value to the growth and development of the business.

UNIDEL builds the management team for its businesses and forges a partnership with them over the long term to develop close understanding, shared values and a spirit of working together for a common goal. To strengthen its businesses, UNIDEL continuously identifies strategic opportunities to step change growth for the business and its people while accelerating value creation for its shareholders

Approach

Investment Strategy & Approach

UNIDEL’s core theme is built around investing in businesses that apply new age technologies to traditional bricks and mortar industry segments. UNIDEL has evolved from its engineering roots into a disruptive software group across industrial, financial and educational technology domains. UNIDEL’s differentiation lies in its ability to connect the dots in new and disruptive markets and fund its own ideas right from an angel investment all the way through to a typical Series A round. UNIDEL companies become profitable through this journey and are ripe for co-investments from like-minded investors.

Connect the dots

Entrepreneurial & Operational Capabilities

UNIDEL believes that value is created for all stakeholders by diligently applying knowledge gained from its many man-years of entrepreneurial, business and operating experience. UNIDEL has consistently generated innovative and profitable business ideas. UNIDEL’s unique skill lies in identifying high growth market opportunities combined with an ability to deliver superior execution all managed with a measured risk-taking appetite.

DELGraphic Systems

DELGraphic Systems was a national distributor and system integrator for computer peripherals serving the GIS, CAD and Graphic Arts markets. A high cost infrastructure, relatively low volumes and reducing gross margins created an unsustainable financial condition. We had to take the painful step to close the doors of this business in 2004 redeploying select people within other ventures.
