K2 Global, a venture growth firm, has attracted a club of marquis billionaires, and combines venture capital and private equity concepts to provide growth capital as well as strategic value to the companies which are set to change global business models with technologies and innovations, said Amanat.
"Our focus is on companies with hyper advanced technologies that would shape the economies of India, Singapore and China as well as re-energise businesses in the United States," said Amanat.
K2 Global is rapidly expanding, with partners in Singapore and Silicon Valley. It has already invested close to USD 50 million in tech companies in just the past 90 days, he said.
Amanat believes the tech-heavyweights in the world's three main markets, India, China and the US, should get more equity growth capital to help launch them to the next level of technological disruption.
