Vortex came to us with a clear vision a great management team and some proof-of-concept clients seeking innovative solutions in the IoT space.  The part that we delivered was centered on fair valuations and investor readiness and investor marketing.  The progression of Vortex is testimony to the deep-tech they are offering, the innovation they demonstrate in solving challenges in the monitoring space and we wish them every success on-going.  This was an exceptional return for our investors in a very short time frame and all the more pleasing because this was the first venture we published for funding in mid-2018.”
