Our mission is to support long-term value creation in the next generation of transformational public companies.

We believe that the businesses with the greatest propensity for long-term value creation seek partners who are themselves proven value builders and have demonstrated success in ushering companies from private to public operating environments.

Highland Transcend was established by our founding partners:

We strive to add value to the entrepreneurs we invest in through several key avenues of support, including:

(i) augmenting management teams by sourcing key leaders

(ii) helping with customer and strategic business partner introductions to drive revenue

(iii) providing proprietary analytics to support data driven decision making such as benchmarking exercises, customer and market research or econometric modeling

(iv) thought-partnership on key strategic or execution challenges and opportunities.

We are propelled by our desire to become the trusted partner to management teams such that they come to rely on us as the first call in a “crisis of opportunity” or a “crisis of calamity.” We believe that now is a particularly strategic time to pursue a business combination. Given the extreme volatility witnessed in equity markets recently, companies aiming to go public via an initial public offering (“IPO”) or direct listing process face high levels of uncertainties and operational complexities which could persist for an extended period. A partnership with Highland Transcend can reduce the risk, time commitment, uncertainty and costs associated with a public listing for our potential targets.
