The OZE Process
We strive to understand what a community is prioritizing. We work with them, listen and understand what they have and what they need. This helps shape our local investment thesis.
We seek to partner and create relationships with anchor institutions, real estate developers and entrepreneurs who have deep resources and local expertise that align with our mission. We believe this helps us identify attractive opportunities and allows us to work with people who are committed to the places where they live and work.
We strive to structure our investments in a way that benefits community residents. We intentionally seek to focus our work geographically because we believe it helps generate returns and helps strengthen social outcomes.
Texas Sized Investments
Bred in Texas, we look to invest and reinvest in our local communities. We are confident that we can build strong businesses locally to better our communities over the long run, specializing in technology that can scale globally and real estate to further invest in the Lone Star State.
