MBF CAPITAL CORPORATION
is an investment firm specializing in making
private equity investments in technology-driven companies. MBF invests
principally in early stage information technology (telecommunications
equipment and services, networking equipment, software and semiconductors)
and medical technology (biopharmaceutical, healthcare services, and drug
discovery technology) companies. MBF invests in start-ups, provides growth
capital, and executes turnarounds. MBF works intensively with its portfolio
companies to build management teams, formulate operating and strategic
plans, complete product development, increase sales volume, implement
marketing plans, and execute financings and corporate partnering. We are
the business mirror of the technology entrepreneur. MBF invests in companies
with leading scientists and entrepreneurs to bring to market innovations
from academic, government, and corporate research. We build a partnership
between innovation and business development. Our mission is to convert
technological innovations into positive cash flow and operating results.
Each year the number and quality of new technological discoveries increase.
The amount of time and capital necessary to commercialize new technologies
is decreasing. The availability of investment capital available continues
to grow. Management with appropriate business skills relevant to technology
is in a state of shortage. All of MBF's portfolio companies require more
than capital, in fact, many of them would not be viable investments with
capital alone. We are willing to "roll up our sleeves", build the operating
and strategic plans, and put together a management team. Our objective is
to transform technological breakthroughs into successful businesses.
We are interested in technological innovations in healthcare and information
technologies that establish new paradigms as opposed to incremental
advances. We have a particular interest in "platform" technologies. We look
for technologies that in turn leverage other technologies, and thereby
increase their value ranking in the technological food chain.
