    Arcapita is a diversified investment firm with interests in Venture Capital, Corporate Investment and Real Estate. Arcapita Ventures is a $200 million dedicated investment fund launched in October 2005. The firm focuses on growth stage enterprises primarily in the United States. Arcapita typically acts as the lead investor in companies operating in the (i) healthcare, (ii) information technology and (iii) industrial technology sectors. The investment team looks for businesses that have established technologies and customer bases, and where its investment capital, network and expertise can be applied to scale a proven business model. Typically, the Fund invests between $4 and $8 million in an initial round of funding, with the capability to invest up to $20 million over the life of a portfolio company. In addition to providing growth capital, the Fund selectively considers venture buyouts of companies with enterprise values of less than $40 million. Within Arcapita's targeted sectors, the partners look for companies that have at least $2 million in revenues over the prior twelve months. Arcapita's corporate investment team operates out of its offices in Atlanta. Arcapita acts as a principal and arranger in the acquisition of controlling interests in established companies in the United States and Europe, focusing on growth-oriented corporate acquisitions with a total transaction value between $300 million and $1 billion. Smaller transactions are considered in certain high-growth situations or in circumstances where opportunities exist for strategic add-on acquisitions. Arcapita maintains additional offices in Bahrain, London and Singapore.
