In the course of eight years, The KSF Group grew from one title to 39 titles, with 153 annual issues.

The Maot Group has been investing in companies and projects in the United States and abroad for more than 20 years. Previous investments have included leveraged buyouts, venture capital positions, and bridge loan financing. However, since 2008 our primary focus has been in nanotechnology, biotechnology, and general high-tech. The company has generally taken positions that were passive, but when warranted has taken a more active role.

We have been fortunate in choosing excellent partners for many of our investments. We have stayed with the ones that were efficient, good to work with, and honest to deal with. Past partners have included Altus Capital, Cotswald Group, HEI Hospitality, Knoll Capital Group, and Walden Capital. Current partners, now that we are primarily focused on technology, include Lux Capital and Lionbird Group. In addition, The Maot Group invests directly in promising companies.

Whether the investments we make provide stellar returns or result in losses, The Maot Group abides by its principal investment philosophy. All transactions are made responsibly, with exacting research, tireless due diligence, and thorough analysis. As we look to the future, we will continue to build and strengthen our portfolio, using the same methods that have worked for us during the past 20 years.
