Identity and Market Strategy

LSC is structured as a financial holding company and it looks for investment opportunities in italian private companies or foreign companies that have a close synergy with previous investments made. The ideal split of its investments is as follows:

10% seed money
25% early stage
25% growth stage
40% mature stage o pre-IPO



The fundamental investment criteria are as follows:

  1. products ready for commercialization and therefore already tested(pre-commercial working prototype available)
