Technology

Focus is critical to success. We invest in opportunities that leverage three of the most vibrant forces at play in the market today.

Mobile

The growth of mobile devices is so fast that quoting numbers is irrelevant, but it’s no longer just about phones.

“Smart devices” in our homes, cars and on our body all contribute to what is referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT). The explosion of these devices create tremendous amounts of data; data which serves as the lifeblood for insight.

Cloud Computing

Data is at its most powerful when it can be stored, shared and analyzed.

Cloud computing serves as the clearinghouse for all of this information, ensuring that the information is secure when needed and accessible when appropriate.

Adaptive AI

While data is the fuel that drives our solutions, insights are required to make improvements both at the macro and micro level.

We've developed an adaptive artificial intelligence platform to make sense of the data and accurately predict future outcomes. Algorithms self-assemble and self-optimize to deliver personalized insights that adapt to an ever-changing world.

Our Model

Our ventures all benefit from investment far beyond financial support. With shared services in marketing, creative, technology, science, accounting, and legal, Aspire entrepreneurs can focus on their core value proposition.
