KFOS invested over the years in early stage startups and has a pool of companies we are working with at various stages. Our investment strategy is always long-term and we are not interested in quick wins through hyped trends but rather invest in long-term gains for all sides involved. Our view is never just financial but also on the bigger impact the company has on the region, employees and other social aspects.
iwantmyname is one of the larger investments we did over the years and is today a globally trading domain name registrar. We have managed to establish iwantmyname in a very crowed market and it has been growing nicely since 2008. The interesting bits we are especially prowd of in iwantmyname is the pioneering work we did on the cultural aspects of a remote working team and the technical foundation we created that was way ahead of its time.
makemy.sale is one of our newer investments and still pre-revenue. We work towards addressing one of the aspects of the housing crisis in New Zealand by providing better data to sellers and re-investing some of our proceeds into housing projects in New Zealand.
