For select large urban development & master planning schemes; we act on either an advisory or a co-development basis.

Through Blue Ocean Accelerator; we act as an F&B accelerator for promising & proven restaurant brands, backed by talented founders and teams.

Structured around private-equity co-investment type opportunities; we work with reputed partners (in the USA, Europe and the Middle-East) providing our stakeholders with development expertise; access to capital & to a global network of valuable relationships with recognized players.

We pride ourselves for taking an unwavering responsibility to the environment and the people involved in our businesses. Our philosophy: “Business with Purpose” is built on the simple fact that business impacts and serves more than just shareholders; it has an equal responsibility to the community and to the planet.

This is not lip service; as we believe in the fundamental business rationale behind such approach in providing healthy and sustainable returns to our stakeholders at large.
