Applico Capital

Co-investing alongside our enterprise clients into tech and business model innovation

Large enterprises and tech startups have a common enemy: Big Tech.

Platform technology monopolies are dominant in a number of industries and many are exploiting their power. To keep up, large enterprises need to embrace novel digital business models and new ways of operating. At the same time, smaller tech players and growing platforms need scale and capital to compete with Big Tech. Applico offers a solution for both.  

Applico’s advisory business seeks to level the playing field by helping these large enterprises and growing technology players collaborate and win. As the digital sherpa to enterprise CEOs, Applico helps large enterprises make sense of the tech landscape and navigate the right path to reinvent their business model by partnering with the best early and growth-stage tech companies. By bringing together established enterprises and the right partners, Applico’s advisory business helps both parties unlock the scale they need to compete against Big Tech and win.

Alongside our advisory practice, Applico Capital deploys flexible, solutions-oriented capital to invest alongside our clients into their tech platform partners and meet their strategic objectives. We deploy a mixture of capital from our balance sheet, personal funds, and a select group of limited partners.
