“For Reefknot in five years, I would like us to be a very clear global leader. In number one, identifying and number two catalyzing the next generation’s supply chain technology leaders. We don’t intend to invest in many companies, but we intend to invest in a few and the few that we invest in we’re looking for them to be that sector leader, the solution leaders. So that’s very clear. So for us to be globally recognized as a leader in growing and helping and identifying these companies. And the ecosystem that you mentioned, the vision is that with the ecosystem partners; Reeknot and the ecosystem will come outas almost like a global leading think tank. We think about new areas and solution and opportunities within the supply chain, logistics business model technology. We spot them early, and we support these areas of growth. So, I think that’s the vision that I’m looking for Reefknot and our partners over the next five years. “
