In KBI, we are particularly focused on the emergence of Cloud Computing. We believe Cloud Computing is the most important trend in the software industry of the decade. We define Cloud Computing as the umbrella encompassing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platforms-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Historically, we have been very active in the SaaS space and will continue to do so. However, as cloud computing has expanded beyond just providing applications as a service, so has our practice.
As investors, we believe that the best business model ever conceived could be the marketplace model. Because marketplaces benefit from powerful network effects – supply and demand follow each other – it’s often a high-stakes battle for leadership: when one marketplace achieves undisputed leadership, it can generate huge profits, retain customers and keep competitors at bay. We admire this winner-take-all (or, occasionally, winner-take-most) dynamic, and are actively evaluating marketplace investments.
Internet of Things
One growing market, known as the Internet of Things (IoT), connects our household items to a wireless network by embedding them with electronic, software, or sensor technology. This network of devices allows us to take the next step into a wireless world that relies less and less on direct human-to-computer interaction. The Internet of Things is definitely present in our everyday lives right now, but there is a lot more room to grow. With the industry showing that much room for growth, KBI has started thinking about investing in the IoT, as a strategy.
Iran’s vibrant economy offers huge potential in fulfilling demand for both domestic and export consumption. KBI sees a long term opportunity in Iran driven by the growth in middle class prosperity and innovation.
