Investment Guidelines

People, not capital, turn dreams into realities.  Accordingly, in evaluating an investment opportunity, the caliber, depth, and dimension of a company's management team are all-important.  The key managers should:

  • Be a well-balanced group in terms of technical competence and proven managerial skills
  • Have a material commitment to the venture's success
  • Have strategic philosophies, policies, and goals compatible with DTVP
  • Be honest and reliable - exemplars of the highest standards of conduct
  • Demonstrate the ability to make money

The prospective portfolio company should embody:
  • Extraordinary potential for growth and capital appreciation
  • Distinctive competitive advantages and products or services with clear-cut market differentials
  • Application of proven state-of-the-art technologies to their products and services
  • A coherent growth strategy presented in a clear and concise business plan
  • Investment needs in the $500,000 to $5,000,000 range - up to $20,000,000 in certain situations
  • A high probability of generating investment returns proportional to the risks
