Our mission is to invest in the companies which are charting the future of how humans and business interact at the last mile, spanning enterprise infrastructure, industrial IoT, automation, retail and E-commerce infrastructure, automotive, and aerospace. We endeavor to enable the applications of innovative technology and business models which bring goods, people, or information to its final destination.
We are looking to partner with strong and rapidly growing companies of values greater than $1 billion where our collaborative team with special operations methodologies and extensive domain expertise can help organizations navigate the public markets and achieve next-level performance.
Our approach to business is based on teamwork, integrity and quiet professionalism, qualities we learned during our training in the military. In fact, our company name, DHC, stands for Duty, Honor, Country — a tribute to our West Point origins. We bring our unique military experience and a consistency and commonality around our values into the corporate world, building high performing teams in a range of specialized industries: investment banking, capital markets, asset management, technology, consumer, aviation, defense, and automotive. We are a tightly connected group of trusted and accomplished business builders. Our collective experience includes: 25 years running public companies, 8 companies founded, 13 companies acquired, and 40 years in military leadership.
We seek to merge with a leading technology or technology-enabled company, solving the challenges of the “last mile,” the short distance to cover to provide goods and services to end-users. We will acquire a company which is public-ready in sectors such as automotive, aerospace or defense, fintech, consumer, enterprise software, industrial IoT or e-commerce where we can add meaningful value, with management teams where we can connect and help drive value.
